Mobile cinema to set up during school half term in Newmarket

A mobile cinema is to be set up in Newmarket during the school half term break in February.

Abbeygate Cinema, in Bury St Edmunds, is joining forces with The Moving Cinema to bring the unique cinematic experience in the grounds adjacent to Severals Cricket Pavilion, from Wednesday to Sunday, February 9 to 19 with daytime and evening showings.

Chris Peters, associate manager of The Moving Cinema, said: “We’re delighted to have the opportunity of bringing our mobile cinema to Newmarket and give the good people of the town a quality cinema experience they are currently missing. 

“Our Mobile Cinema is fully heated and air conditioned, with full digital projection and surround sound facilities, and of course is fully accessible. We’ll bring a varied programme of mainstream, family and arthouse film titles, as well as showcase some ‘Screen Arts’ productions from the theatre, opera and ballet world. There will truly be something for everyone.”

The event is supported by the Newmarket Charitable Foundation who are working with the Jockey Club to explore the feasibility of renovating the Subscription Rooms to become a cinema venue for the town in the future.
