After 16 long months of closure, it is showtime again at Buxton Cinema and High Peak audiences can once again enjoy the magic of the movies without having to travel outside the area.

The cinema re-opens on Saturday July, 31 with some of this year’s biggest movies, starting with family favourite Peter Rabbit 2 and Disney’s Cruella, plus the nerve-shredding A Quiet Place Part II.

As part of the reopening The Advertiser has teamed up with the St John’s Road venue to offer one lucky reader a family ticket for Peter Rabbit 2 – four tickets including at least one child to any showing of the film, subject to availability.
