A luxury cinema has responded to residents’ wishes to open a new site on the town high street in an empty building.  

Residents in Beaconsfield have welcomed Everyman Cinema to the town with open arms according to the town mayor Jackson Ng.

He told the Free Press earlier residents had written to him and pointed out that Beaconsfield should have Everyman like neighbouring Gerrards Cross.

A proposed location for the luxury cinema was the former Prezzo building on Station Road, which is now back up for sale after Wetherspoons cancelled its plans to develop the iconic building into a new pub.

Beaconsfield has strong links to movie and TV production thanks to the National Film and Television School located in the town, and close proximity to film studios like Pinewood and London.

Unfortunately for the town cinemagoers, it looks like Beaconsfield won’t be hosting Everyman anytime soon after the company responded to the wishes. 

The CEO of Everyman Alex Scrimgeour said: "We are delighted to hear so much positive sentiment towards Everyman from the people of Beaconsfield.

"Our venue in Gerrard's Cross is nearby, as is our newest venue which will open in Marlow on September 29, so we'd love to welcome Beaconsfield customers there."

Everyone is set to open its second Buckinghamshire venue in Marlow on Friday September 29.

The chain’s cinemas are known for the comfortable chairs, a food and drinks menu and direct service to customers’ chairs during screenings.
