The Curzon cinema in Ripon is set to reopen on September 30 with a screening of Daniel Craig’s final outing as James Bond in No Time To Die.

The two-screen North Street venue has been closed since the first covid lockdown in March last year.

Plans for it to reopen on June 4 were put on hold due to social distancing problems caused by the venue’s small size.

Becky Tobin, regional manager for Curzon, said the team was “very excited” to finally be reopening:

“We are thrilled that you will also be seeing some familiar faces as a lot of the team have decided to return and are looking forward to seeing our regulars and members again.

“The returning team, along with the new recruits, will be getting into the swing of things in the next few weeks with some onsite training of our revamped food and drink menu.”

The venue will welcome back its patrons with James Bond-inspired martinis.

Tickets will be for sale online as early as next week.

The cinema, which opened in Ripon in November 2013, is part of a BAFTA award-winning company that allows members to view films at home through its streaming service, as well as in Curzon venues across the UK.

As the covid lockdown restrictions on cinemas and live theatre were progressively eased by the government earlier this year, the Curzon remained closed in Ripon, sparking fears the city’s only cinema would not reopen.
