Cinema 100 launches at New Theatre

The New Theatre opens its doors once again as Cinema 100 @ New Theatre Peterborough launches from Friday 31st July.

The New Theatre was originally built as a cinema and opened in 1937. It continued to operate as a cinema for nearly 50 years before closing in 1991. In 1996, the venue was converted into a theatre and re-opened as Cinema 100. Now, operated by Selladoor Theatres, the New Theatre is a thriving live performance venue in the heart of Peterborough.

Following the Covid-19 closure, the New Theatre is once again re-opening its doors with the launch of Cinema 100 @ New Theatre Peterborough, presenting a brilliant summer programme of film screenings.

The opening weekend of Cinema 100 @ New Theatre Peterborough begins with The Invisible Man on Friday 31st July, Trolls World Tour and Military Wives on Saturday 1 August and Mary Poppins Returns on Sunday 2 August. The programme continues with everything from Rocketman to 1917, as well as family favourites; Doolittle, Incredibles 2, and The Addams Family – to name but a few!

With 15 films currently announced, the New Theatre are pleased to be able to provide the audiences of Peterborough and the surrounding areas with this wide variety of films to entertain all tastes and ages.
