ONE17 NEWS - ERROL FLYNN FILMHOUSE OPENS ITS SECOND SCREEN

Errol Flynn Filmhouse opens its second screen

Following the success enjoyed by the art cinema Errol Flynn Filmhouse (EFF) designed by ONE17 Architects for the Royal & Derngate Theatre, Northampton and which opened in 2012, the company has just completed a second screen for the same client, EFF2.

The new cinema was officially opened on the 6th of April with the British premiere showing of 'Their Finest’ the latest film from director Lone Scherfig, starring Gemma Arterton, Sam Claflin and Bill Nighy. The film makes reference to Errol Flynn who was for a period in the 1930s a member of the repertory company at Northampton Royal Theatre.

The management of the Royal & Derngate have been so pleased with the success of the EFF cinemas that they are now considering rolling out the concept in other parts of Northamptonshire.
