New Cinema for Thames

Left Bank Cinema is on track to open in Thames April 2024.
It will be a comforting and welcoming space, and visually interesting as well.
There will be some armchairs, but also conventional cinema seats. All seating will be comfortable.
The cinema will have a high-quality ventilation, heating and cooling system, and will include facilities for people with disabilities and hearing impairment.
People will be able to purchase a glass of wine, beer,
bubbles and similar; there will be a range of nice non-alcoholic drinks, tea and machine coffee,
(or bring a barista one with you from a local cafe)
and finger foods, ice creams and snacks.
There will be a small courtyard out the back if people would like to meet there before a movie.
