The sites – which were previously owned and operated by Empire – will be operated by Everyman with immediate effect.
Alex Scrimgeour, chief executive officer of Everyman, said: “We are delighted to announce the acquisition of these cinemas in the historic city of Bath and the vibrant town of Cheltenham. We pride ourselves on providing an elevated cinema experience, making these venues a terrific addition to the Everyman portfolio. We look forward to welcoming the local community to our newest locations in this exciting new chapter for the business.”
In August, the up-market cinema chain said it had a “well-developed” pipeline of new openings in 2024. It had also agreed a new loan facility of £35m which it said ensures that it is soundly financially structured and well positioned.
