During the last 12 months thousands of cinema-goers have descended on the ODEON Dorchester based in Brewery Square to catch the latest movie blockbusters and alternative screenings.

With attendance figures up by 45 per cent during this period compared to 2012 and the cinema having the highest growth in attendance across the whole group in the UK, the Dorchester cinema team is looking forward to another bumper few months.

The ODEON Dorchester puts this footfall success down to the variety of content shown on its big screen, which includes live broadcasts of National Theatre, Royal Ballet and Royal Opera House productions as well as the latest movies, and its pricing structure which sees ticket prices at £2.00 on a Tuesday and start from £3.00 on all other days.

The live broadcast of the National Theatre’s production of War Horse in February proved to be one of the most popular screenings, with more than 420 people watching the production in the cinema’s three screens.

Following this success, the cinema is looking forward to an exciting six months with an array of alternative screenings.  The National Theatre’s production of A Small Family Business by Olivier award-winning playwright Alan Ayckbourn, Puccini’s opera Manon Lescaut, Monty Python Live and The Royal Ballet’s recital of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland are just a few of the classic productions due to be screened at the ODEON Dorchester from June until the end of the year.

Alan Escott, general manager at ODEON Dorchester, says: “We would like to thank our customers for their loyal support.  We aim to provide a first-class cinema experience at a competitive price and we are pleased that this is being received extremely well by those living in Dorchester and the surrounding communities.

“With our excellent bar facilities, our cinema makes a perfect evening for theatre and film viewing.”
