Nova Cinema opening Autumn 2020

Thursday September 17th

The countdown to launch is now on, as the hotly anticipated opening of Woking’s brand-new Nova Cinema is on the horizon.

Following a full refurbishment, complete with top of the range technology and an out-of-this-world rebrand, the 7-screen venue (formerly The Ambassadors Cinema) is set to become the town centre’s brightest star.

With a series of exciting events and bespoke programming, the Nova Cinema launch season will be the hottest ticket in town for everyone from families and theatre goers to young professionals and all those in between.

Nova Cinema will well and truly belong to the people of Woking as they will have the opportunity to influence which films are to be included in a series of themed seasons, as well as blockbuster hits while the food and drink offering will be packed full of local produce.

The cinema will be completely COVID-safe and the Nova team will be going above and beyond government requirements so that film lovers of all ages can feel safe and secure to relax and enjoy the experience.

This is a magical moment for film-lovers in Woking, and for the town centre as a whole. The refurbishment of the Ambassador Theatre Group (ATG) owned venue is a significant step in the Woking’s regeneration, and the launch collaborates with Woking Borough Council’s #WeAreWoking initiative to revitalise the town centre.

The Ambassadors Cinema closed in September 2019 as part of a joint investment plan between ATG and Woking Borough Council to transform the much-loved venue into a new and exciting state-of-the-art entertainment facility.

Nova Cinema is due to open in Autumn 2020 and more specific information on this, as well as images, programming, food and drink offers, hireable space details and all of the bits you are going to want to know will be released in the coming days.
