Harrogate's biggest cinema to reopen in a matter of days with Christopher Nolan's new film
It's just a matter of days now before Harrogate's biggest cinema welcomes back film fans for the first time in nearly five months.
The Harrogate Odeon is planning to planning reopen on Tueaday, August 25 - just a day before the first screenings of famed director Christopher Nolan's highly anticipated new movie Tenet.
Starring John David Washington and Robert Pattinson, Nolan's typically unusual spy thriller has already been described as "mind-blowing."
The 910-seater Odeon at East Parade, Harrogate's famous art deco cinema, was to have reopened originally on Friday, July 16.
But the Harrogate Advertiser was told the idea was paused because of the challenges around what new content it would be able to screen and the public demand being so low for the older content it had intended to show.
or its official reopening on August 25, the Harrogate Odeon has introduced major changes to create a new safer cinema experience for film-goers.
The changes range from social distancing between seats and in foyers to to face masks and new enhanced cleaning routines.
Harrogate's other major cinema, Everyman, has been open for more than a month.
