The cinema will be operated by Olympic Studios and will have three screens. Two of those screens will have 80 seats while the remaining screen will sit 30. Opening in November, just in time for the Christmas releases, this new cinema is bound to delight shoppers visiting the area.
There will be a direct entrance to the new cinema from the store and there will also be one from Duke Street. This means customers can bypass Selfridges should you wish but they also have the opportunity to pop into the cinema in the middle of the posh London shopping trip too. For those who really feel like pushing the boat out, the cinema will also feature a private screening room as well as an underground bar. The cinema will even stay open once the store has closed for the night, just for those late-night movie lovers. This is certainly going to be a classy venture that visitors to the much-loved store will adore.
The Managing Director of Selfridges, Simon Forster has said that he is delighted about the new venture. He feels that the Selfridges brand is well-known with providing luxury and quality and so he feels that it makes absolute sense that they would bring these qualities into the entertainment industry too. He hopes that the entire experience will be one that customers in London enjoy and want to do over and over again.
As of yet, there haven't been many details released in regard to how much tickets will cost or what kind of food will be served up at the cinema. Having looked at the food offering within other cinemas run by Olympic Studios within London, it does look as if visitors can look forward to luxury. With items such as scallops and steak tartare on the menu, it might well not be the traditional movie snack but it does look extremely appetising. Plus, we're sure there will be some popcorn to eat through the film. They seem to show all of the latest films too as well as some classic favourites, so visitors to the new venture will certainly be in for a treat.
