First look inside Farnborough’s long-awaited Vue cinema

We got a sneak peek inside Farnborough's new Vue cinema, with the doors set to be flung open in early May.

With just weeks until its curtain call, Vue is confident it will hit its latest May deadline to deliver Farnborough's new cinema.

The external work is complete and construction is advancing inside for the seven-screen cinema in Kingsmead.

It was originally, optimistically, expected to be finished by the end of 2013, however a number of delays mean it now more than a year behind schedule.


It is expected that final construction will be complete by May 1. Vue will then spend a week putting together the final touches before the cinema is due to open on May 8.

The News & Mail visited the site this week for a behind-the-scenes look at the progress.

Each of the viewing rooms, which vary in size, have been fitted out with seats and screens with disabled access and VIP seating.

Bean bag seats, which are included in some nearby Vue cinemas such as Camberley, are no longer used by Vue.

The seats and projection equipment are covered in plastic sheets, which will be removed closer to the opening date.

During the visit, cabinets were being fitted to the large reception area that will house the usual ticket and food counters as well as ATM machines and sofas.

The cinema will have capacity for around 920 people and the complex will contain restaurants such as Prezzo, among others.
