PARKWAY Cinema is set to reopen its doors on Friday for the first time in more than four months having closed due to coronavirus restrictions.

During the closure, the cinema carried out a number of refurbishments and redecoration - including upgrading both the sound systems and additional toilet facilities.

The cinema will open with social distancing in place, sanitising stations and protective screens at all sales points.

A reduced food and drink menu will be on offer and the cinema advise to book tickets in advance.

Director Rob Younger said: “Following the successful reopening of our sister cinemas in Beverley, Cleethorpes, Louth and Richmond, I am delighted to announce that Barnsley will be open very soon.

“My staff and I will be delighted to welcome you into a familiar, but safer environment, with the same great service and value.”

The film shown at the reopening will be Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, as it is 100 years since film was first shown on the site - in the former Empire theatre.
