Cinema bosses have revealed the opening date for a new multiplex as part of the £45million expansion of a popular shopping and leisure complex.

Cineworld has confirmed its latest complex will open at Dalton Park on Friday, September 9, creating 30 jobs.

The cinema will feature seven screens and a total of 1,000 seats, with bosses promising they will bring the latest Hollywood releases to the venue.

Film fans will also be able to pick up a treat from a Baskin Robbins ice cream counter.

The venue is part of the phase two extension to the shopping outlet and will join the newly opened Pizza Express, Frankie and Benny’s and a KFC drive-thru, which has created 50 jobs,

Prezzo, which is in the process of recruiting 10 staff members, is due to open within days.

A question mark remains over its supermarket unit, which has been leased to Morrisons, with a 25-year deal signed for the building.

The firm has said it is carrying out a review of its new store formats.

Nick Bashford, Cineworld Dalton Park’s general manager, said the multiplex would deliver crystal-clear images and featured a powerful digital sound system which were "perfect to watch Ben-Hur or Bridget Jones’s Baby – two of September’s biggest titles".

He said: "We’re delighted about the opening of Cineworld Dalton Park. We have such an exciting line-up of films coming up, like Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and Stars Wars: Rogue One, and look forward to welcoming the community to share our passion for film.”

He said cinema fans can take advantage of a range of offers at Cineworld Dalton Park including weekly discounted Movies for Juniors screenings for just £2 on Saturdays, Sundays and during school holidays, as well as Student NUS discount. The cinema is also available for private venue hire.

Cineworld Unlimited Card holders can also enjoy access to an unlimited number of films per month for less than the price of two new-release peak time tickets, as well as 10% off cinema snacks and drinks, local offers at restaurants and shops, and exclusive advance screenings.

Tickets for Cineworld Dalton Park go on sale from Friday, August 26.
