Thank you to Variety for talking to our very own Paul on the difficulties the cinema and exhibition sectors face in the midst of a second lockdown and about the changes we’ve made to The Northern Light Cinema so that we can still offer a safe, special night out without compromising on style once it’s safe to reopen.
“Other independent cinemas have permanently altered their business model. The Northern Light cinema in Wirksworth decided to remodel with a reduced capacity and change the venue to a stylish, high-end offering.
“We’re [under] no illusions as to the difficulty we’ll face over the next few months, but we’re confident that our approach will be well received by our audience,” cinema owner Paul Carr tells Variety. “By offering a smaller, more intimate experience, we’ll be able to offer a great night out and keep it safe and in style.””
