Movie fans on Romney Marsh will finally be able to catch a flick at a cinema from this weekend.
Cinemarsh - the area's only picture house - officially opens today with the latest James Bond film, No Time to Die.
The movie theatre, at Marsh Academy's leisure centre, has been years in the making and its renovation was completed in 2020.
However, its opening was delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
But the team are now ready to open the doors to the 46 seat auditorium and have lined up a programme of films to suit all viewers.
Upcoming showings include Dune, The Eternals, The Addams Family 2, Last Night in Soho and French Dispatch, as well as the latest Bond.
Classic films such as the Sound of Music, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone and Parasite will also be screened.
A website to book tickets is now up and running.
Manager Jason Mahoney said: "Since the leisure centre re-opened earlier this year the most popular question has been about when the cinema will open.”
The theatre will be open every day, and show around 20 screenings a week.
Tickets will cost £8 for adults, £7 for concessions and students, and £6.50 for leisure centre members and children. Family tickets are also available.
There will also be discounted tickets on Tuesdays.
To keep the prices low, the cinema will only make around 40p revenue after expenses on screenings of No Time To Die, bosses say.
Mr Mahoney added: “We hope our selection of films will draw people in.
"Plus we’re on the doorstep so that will encourage people to come and maybe introduce them to different genres.”
Popcorn, chocolate, sweets and drinks will also be on offer in the foyer and lounge area.
