Star Wars: The Last Jedi is the blockbuster film which will launch Buxton’s new cinema this month.

There will now be no need for film fans to head off to one of the larger towns or cities to see the latest movies as after 30 years the town finally has a dedicated cinema space.

Buxton has been without a permanent film venue since the closure of the Spa Cinema in the 80s so the High Peak Theatre Trust, which runs the Opera House and Pavilion Arts, has decided to do something about it and has specially adapted the Pavilion Arts Centre.

It has been updated with a new and larger screen, and a new projector and they promise that the cinema is a developing project with more exciting changes being introduced over time.

Fans of community cinema Buxton Film will be pleased to know that it is still going strong and will continue to show a variety of arthouse films in the Studio Theatre on Monday evenings.

As well as screening all the latest films Buxton Cinema will also offer live and Encore screenings from prestigious theatre companies from across the UK.

In December you will be able to see Young Marx from the National Theatre and in February there will be a chance to see the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Twelfth Night and the National Theatre’s Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. There are also plans for dementia friendly, family and silver screenings and in the new year they will be launching a membership scheme.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be screened at the new cinema from December 14-28.
