News: Cinema returns to Rotherham after 18 years


This summer, the Studio Theatre in the Central Library and Arts Centre will be decked out with a specially created 5m x 5.4m cinema screen, a new projector and sound system, to bring all the magic of Hollywood back to the borough. An intriguing programme of films, from cult classics to family favourites that you can’t see in the local multiplex, will be presented, and all for a fraction of the price that you would normally pay. Theatre Manager, Mark Scott, said: “It’s great to be able to bring this kind of entertainment back to Rotherham. The last cinema, The Empire, closed on Thursday February 22, 1990, some 18 years ago." Also in Rotherheam town centre, on Sunday June 1, the Royal Ballet brings a live screening of its production of Romeo and Juliet to All Saints' Square. The Sunday afternoon slot has been chosen to allow families the opportunity to get together, take a picnic, and enjoy the Royal Ballet's production of Shakespeare's tragedy.
