When you are looking for a site for a new cinema, size matters. What’s more, when you’re looking for a space for an Everyman cinema, location is paramount too. It’s essential that the venue’s position attracts customers who value quality and the finer things in life. The properties need to have both the space and height to accommodate at least 2 screens along with the lobby, kitchen, bar area and rest rooms. Everyman have venues ranging from beautiful old cinemas that they have renovated and brought back to life, to new, cutting-edge modern developments. Each space is unique.
