Cinema for Bolton town centre 

Puss in Boots will be the first film show, on Sunday, January 15

Tickets are on sale for Bolton’s first community cinema.

A new film club is opening at the Albert Halls on Sunday, January 15 with a performance of Puss in Boots.

Council chiefs have organised the film screenings to attract families to the town centre at weekends.

Leader of Bolton Council, Councillor Cliff Morris, said: “This is going to be great for Bolton and something which will appeal to all the family.

“We have a perfect ready-made venue in the Albert Halls. We are still working to secure a cinema operator for the town centre but in the meantime we are going to trial this for a few months as we think this could be a good short-term solution.

Family friendly films will be shown on a mobile screen, measuring 18 feet by 10 feet, with a 15 minute interval during the screening.

Councillor Morris added: “In the New Year everyone is looking for something to do which isn’t costly and we have kept the prices low to make it as affordable for families as possible.

“Together with the free parking on-street and in surface level car parks on Sundays, it means that families can do something fun and affordable after the expense of Christmas.”

The Albert Halls can seat 500 people. Tickets cost £4 for adults, £2 for children and £10 for a family of four. Refreshments will be available to buy.

Puss in Boots will be showing at 2pm and the next film showing is Alvin and the Chipmunks 3: Chipwrecked on Sunday, February 12 at 2pm.
