November proved to be a bumper month for the ODEON Dorchester with thousands of cinema-goers descending on the Brewery Square-based venue to catch the latest movie blockbusters and alternative screenings.
Since the ODEON Dorchester introduced its new pricing structure five months ago, which sees ticket prices at £2.00 on a Tuesday and start from £3.00 on all other days, the cinema has witnessed an increase in footfall.
Saturday November 23 proved to be the most popular day of not only the month but for the year to date. Science fiction was the theme of the screenings with this being the opening weekend for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and the exclusive screening of the 50th anniversary episode of Doctor Who also taking place, plus sci-fi thriller Gravity was still proving a big hit.
Alan Escott, general manager at the ODEON Dorchester, says: "We endeavour to provide the best cinema experience at a competitive price and it's great to see that our new prices are proving popular. To ensure we offer something for all interests and ages we regularly screen alternative performances such as ballet, music and theatre, often beamed live via satellite, and we also offer ODEON Kids screenings at pocket money prices to complement the latest blockbuster films."
This month, ODEON Dorchester will be screening The Nutcracker (Live) from The Royal Opera House on Thursday December 12, and due to popular demand two screens will be transmitting the performance which starts at 7.15pm.
More than 200 cinema-goers will be able to experience the greatest stars of ballet, live from London's Covent Garden, in the comfort of the ODEON Dorchester.
ODEON Dorchester is situated within the Brewery Square development and tickets for The Nutcracker can be booked by calling 0871 224 4007 or visiting www.odeon.co.uk/cinemas/dorchester/214/
