Prestige cinema operator Everyman to join Treadmills
Published on Thursday, 17th January 2019
One of the UK’s most prestigious cinema groups has been announced as the operator of a four-screen venue within the new Treadmills scheme in Northallerton, North Yorkshire.
Everyman has chosen the £17m Treadmills development as its latest location in a continuing story of innovation, investment and growth.
The new cinema will be a prime draw for the exciting mixed-used scheme which is being created on the site of the historic former Northallerton Prison.
Everyman currently has 26 cinemas across the UK and, with more openings due in 2019, has more than doubled in size within the past four years.
The stylish cinema chain targets audience members looking for a special night at the movies. The company is known for its intimate and plush interiors and comfy couches, where discerning cinemagoers can enjoy a glass of wine and a slice of freshly made pizza either in the bar or served to their seats.
Everyman focuses on town and city centre locations at the heart of local communities. It offers a warm and welcoming atmosphere, with a high-quality food and drink menu and a wide selection of mainstream, independent and classic films, as well as special events, launches and a programme of live satellite broadcasts.
The rise of boutique operators such as Everyman is credited as one of the contributing factors in an impressive rise in cinema admission numbers. Last year, 176m British cinemagoers enjoyed a night at the movies – a number not seen for almost 50 years.
The 11,000 sq ft Northallerton cinema will be located above three new restaurant units which adjoin an attractive new public square as the centrepiece of Treadmills.
The scheme is being delivered by the Central Northallerton Development Company (CNDC), a joint venture between Hambleton District Council and leading Yorkshire property developer Wykeland Group.
