Socially distanced cinema to reopen at Millennium Point

Classic films brought back on the giant screen.

Film fans will once again have the chance to watch a series of much-loved classics on Millennium Point’s giant screen, as its socially distanced cinema returns this summer, complete with special movie-themed cocktails and wine.

Millennium Point’s Auditorium (formerly the first IMAX cinema in Birmingham), will reopen and screen three classic films this summer. The venue has teamed up with innovative event specialists The Wine Events Company, who will pause the films to provide movie-lovers with film trivia and themed cocktails and wine during the screenings.

80s sci-fi favourite Back to the Future is first up on Friday 4th June, offering visitors the chance to immerse themselves in the time travelling action, as well as indulge in five movie-themed wines. On Saturday 17th July, guests will have the time of their lives, as they watch Dirty Dancing on the big screen, whilst enjoying four themed cocktails, including a watermelon martini. The final screening will take place on Sunday 8th August, as film-lovers can enjoy the 70s Spielberg classic Jaws and dive into four delicious themed cocktails.

The award-winning events team at Millennium Point has introduced several hygiene and safety measures to ensure that the socially distanced screenings are safe for all film enthusiasts to enjoy. These include reduced capacity in the Auditorium with all seats allocated beforehand, hand sanitising stations throughout the venue, a cashless and contactless experience, as well as social distancing measures and PPE for all staff.

Tickets for Back to the Future are priced at £31.95 per person (plus fees) and include five glasses of themed wine. Tickets for Dirty Dancing and Jaws are priced at £35.95 per person (plus fees) and include four delicious film-themed cocktails, which will be served to visitors throughout the film.

Rebecca Delmore, commercial director at Millennium Point, said: “We’re very excited to announce our latest partnership with the Wine Events Company, and can’t wait to welcome movie-lovers from across the region back to our big screen this summer to enjoy a truly memorable and immersive experience.”
