The cinema opened its doors to the public at Dalton Park on September 9, 2016, when a gala night Ben Hur screening was held.

Since then, the seven-screen multiplex cinema has shown every major blockbuster with the trend set to continue at the end of this month when the highly anticipated new James Bond movie ‘No Time To Die’ is released on September 30.

To celebrate five years at Dalton Park, Cineworld have revealed that there will be 10,000 free popcorn giveaways for customers with a valid, pre-booked QR ticket between September 9 and 12.
