A STATE-of-the-art cinema in Bracknell is celebrating its first birthday with a late-night screening of a new horror film.

Cineworld Bracknell, which boasts 12 screens including the only 4DX screen in the Thames Valley, has shown a total of 326 films over 18,325 screenings during the last 12 months.

More than a quarter of a million film fans have visited the cinema in its first year, and the company is hoping many of those will return this weekend to help celebrate the milestone.

This weekend, the cinema will be hosting a variety of activities, including the 4DX Rodeo Challenge, where locals will be challenged to stay on a chair simulating 4DX. Customers who last longer than 60 seconds could win a year’s worth of free cinema with a Cineworld Unlimited card.

A late-night screening of the 2018 supernatural horror film The Nun will also mark the occasion, with a special 10pm screening in 4DX on Friday, September 7. The film will put viewers to the ultimate test with the 4DX experience set to bring the horrors on screen to life in the most immersive and thrilling way possible.

Natalie King, Cineworld Bracknell General Manager said: “It has been an excellent year for Cineworld Bracknell and we’re particularly proud of the support we’ve received from the local community. Cinemagoers have engaged very well with the film slate on offer over the past year, and we have a terrific line-up of upcoming films to keep this momentum going.”
