Cinema bosses have revealed more details about their new seven screen complex as it gets set to move from its current location to a new prime spot in the town centre.

Reel cinema in Burnley will be upgrading to a new site in Pioneer Place from mid-2023, as work on the purpose-built luxury seven screen cinema gets under way.

Film fans will benefit from state-of-the-art laser projection for all seven screens, and improved comfortable leather seating, with ample leg room, in six of the auditoria.

Bosses say the seventh screen - the REEL Lounge - will offer customers a premium cinema-going experience rarely seen outside of London and the UK’s largest cities, with luxury sofa seating and waiter/waitress service to bring food and drink to the tables.

REEL cinemas’ Sweet Barrel will offer cinemagoers a wide range of other confectionery treats including gluten free, sugar free and vegetarian options.

Visitors to the Cream and Cones dessert bar will be able to choose from waffles, Gelato ice creams and milkshakes.

The cinema forms part of a new leisure complex at Pioneer Place, which will cost in the region of £21million.

It will also include four eateries, with Nandos favoured to be occupying one of the five retail units on offer.

Managing director of Reel Cinemas Ltd, Kailash Suri, said “We are delighted that work will be underway shortly on our new REEL Cinema Burnley, and that we will be able to offer our customers old and new a truly outstanding cinema-going experience, the likes of which is currently unavailable in the town.

"Reel cinemas prides itself on offering our audience members great customer service, complete comfort and value for money.

"The new Reel cinema Burnley will continue to give the local community somewhere to spend quality time with family and friends.”

The new Reel cinema Burnley will be a key part of the major new town centre development commissioned by Burnley Council, featuring multiple restaurants in addition to the cinema.

Until that development is completed and the new cinema opened, the existing Reel cinema Burnley will remain open in its current location at Hollywood Park, Centenary Way.
