Film fans will be able to take their seats at Corby’s new cinema when it opens its doors tomorrow.

Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation will be the first film shown at the £6 million structure, which has been developed by Mulberry Property Developments.

Other films to be shown on its first day of opening include Hot Pursuit, Ant-Man, Jurassic World and Minions.

A message left on the cinema’s website earlier this month said: “The people of Corby have been eagerly awaiting their very own big screen experience and with the construction of our new six-screen multiplex on George Street approaching completion, we’re very happy to say the wait is nearly over.

“We’re excited to see the cinema starting to come to life, including wall-to-wall screens, the breath-taking new Dolby Atmos © immersive sound technology and stunning Digital 3D.

“The latest seating technology, incorporating the new ProBax © support system, will optimise your posture for ultimate comfort in every screen.

“You’ll be able to sit back, relax, and enjoy the many blockbusters and live events available.

“And 2015 certainly promises to be a smash-hit for film fans.

“Thanks for stopping by, we can’t wait to roll out the red carpet for you soon.”

The new cinema complex includes the Nando’s, Spur RBW and Prezzo restaurants, which all opened recently and sit alongside the cinema, which is the fourth for the Nottingham-based Savoy group.

It will be fully digital and feature the latest audio-visual technology, including immersive sound and 3D viewing to bring blockbusters to life.

Screen one will offer the very latest Dolby Atmos sound system, which has been used in productions such as American Sniper and Big Hero 6.

The cinema has the capacity for up to 900 people and boasts spacious stadium-style seating.

The cinema has created more than 40 jobs and further jobs have been created with the restaurants.

Savoy has also said it is keen to play a part in the community, and has already put this in place by working closely with the University of Northampton offering placements to students in a variety of roles relevant to their chosen degree.
