Film fever as new cinema launches on Sunday

A trio of popular films will be screened to launch The Windsor Picturehouse on Sunday.

The town's brand new cinema will be based in the auditorium of the Theatre Royal in Thames Street, and will show Disney classic Aladdin, musical Moulin Rouge and action thriller Inception on its opening day.

On Wednesday movie fans will be able to watch The Great Gatsby and Life of Pi, while on Saturday, October 12, Monsters University and Ice Age 4 will be played.

On Sunday, October 20, the options will be Man of Steel and Searching for Sugar Man.

The rest of the line-up for the season includes Lincoln, Elf, Madagascar 3, Wreck-It Ralph and more.

On announcing the launch of the Picturehouse earlier this year, Roger Richardson, executive director of the Theatre Royal, said: "It seems rather apt that a Windsor cinema should be hosted by the theatre given that the building was used as a cinema in the 1920s."

Tickets for the films start from £4, but membership packages are available with discounts and monthly offers.

If you sign up by Sunday, the annual membership fee is halved to £15 for individuals and £25 for families.

The full line-up is available on the theatre's website.
