The Majestic Cinema and Alive Corn Exchange Cinema are working together on what they can show on their big screens in King’s Lynn.
Paul Jervais, Owner of the Majestic Cinema, said: “We’re all going to benefit from this, particularly the people who live or come into King’s Lynn to enjoy a film on the big screen.
“The Majestic has four screens, and the Corn Exchange has two. We suggested that we work together in how we book the films shown in the cinemas in town and are pleased to be working with Alive West Norfolk.
“This is a huge time for cinema. The latest James Bond film has been incredibly popular, and we should see more big films in the run-up to Christmas.”
As part of the agreement, the Alive Corn Exchange will start showing No Time To Die from Friday 15 October, two weeks after its UK release. Philip Bayfield, Head of Arts and Entertainment at Alive West Norfolk, is pleased to see the return of Bond on the big screen and this partnership: “We have joined forces with the Majestic Cinema and will use the same film booker. For the benefit of King’s Lynn, they will be booking for a six screen offer for the town. This gives us greater flexibility with what can be offered at the two cinemas and makes the town more attractive to film distributors.”
Cllr Stuart Dark MBE, Leader of the borough council, added: “Our cinema at the Alive Corn Exchange has always had great support from the Majestic Cinema. This new partnership will see the two work even closer together when it comes to booking films to be shown in the town, when the films are shown and complement each other with their film programmes. This will give King’s Lynn filmgoers more choice.”
