Preparations are underway for the official opening of the high street picture house which has proved a popular draw in its first few weeks of opening.

Arriving in a Rolls Royce to a bank of flashbulbs will be Margaret, Countess Attlee who opened Great Yarmouth’s Palace Casino in 2008.

Efe Eguko, cinema marketing manager, said there had been a tremendous turnout so far.

He said there were some challenges, as expected, but that overall feedback had been positive, adding: “Everyone seemed really happy about it.”
