Cinema-goers in Doncaster will be thrilled to hear that Vue Entertainment International, the UK’s leading developer and operator of digital, state-of-the-art-cinemas, has announced the 16th November as the completion date for Vue Doncaster’s multi-million pound transformation.

To celebrate, on November 16 the cinema will be holding a screening of the new family comedy release Get Santa ahead of its official release on 5th December. The film sees a father and son team up to save Christmas once they discover Santa Claus sleeping in their garage, after crashing his sleigh and finding himself on the run from the police. Doors open at 2pm for a 2.30pm start and the dress code for the event is ‘Hollywood Glamour’.

Work on the cinema began in May this year to create four new auditoriums taking the total to eleven state-of-the-art screens. Other improvements to the cinema include the full refurbishment of all existing auditoriums, with the introduction of stadium style seating, along with new seats, larger screens, improved environmental acoustics and sound systems, and a complete redesign and renewal of the toilet facilities. A new foyer including the replacement and relocation of concessions, featuring a new Ben and Jerry’s ice cream kiosk, is also on offer.

Vue Doncaster will be the first cinema in the Vue Group in Europe to benefit from Solar PV electricity generation units, which have been fitted at roof level. The introduction of solar units is one of the many energy efficiency initiatives being introduced to the Doncaster cinema.

Debbie Ryde, General Manager of Vue Doncaster said: “We’re thrilled to be reopening our new state-of-the-art multiplex cinema. This refurbishment will give film fans in Doncaster the chance to experience a new, dynamic entertainment destination, and with additional auditoriums and further developments to the family dining offer we’re confident that our venue will be a huge hit with people in the local area.”

In addition to the enhanced viewing experience, film goers will also benefit from the wide choice of competitively priced ticket options available, including concessions for children, teens and seniors, Supersaver tickets, EE Wednesdays and Nectar point offers.

Vue also offers a greater choice of films and event cinema screenings including live 2D and 3D music concerts, sporting events, gaming, comedy, opera and ballet.
