Operations manager Matthew Effemey said: “We are over the moon to be able to confirm we’ll be open for the May Bank Holiday weekend and just can’t wait to welcome our customers back through the door.

“There’s some great films to see including the multi-award winning Nomadland (12A) starring Frances McDormand; Disney’s Cruella (12A), a comedy drama based on the character Cruella De Vil from the animated film One Hundred and One Dalmations; Ammonite (15), an intense romance with a few twists and turns along the way starring Kate Winslet and Saoirse Ronan; and fun for all the family with Peter Rabbit 2: the Runaway (U).

“The first few shows will be socially distanced and their line-up opens with Horrible Histories – Barmy Britain on Wednesday, June 2 and Thursday, June 3, followed by Joel Dommett & Friends on Friday, June 11, Britain’s much-loved soprano singer Lesley Garrett on Sunday, June 20 and an exclusive show for Horsham from West-End stars Oliver Tompsett and Louise Dearman in A Night at The Musicals on Saturday, July 24.”

Matthew added “We want our customers to enjoy the magic of live theatre once more and are looking forward to a packed programme of shows for the autumn including the great British comedy Educating Rita in September and some fantastic family shows.

“Covid safety measures will remain in line with Government guidelines and The Capitol has been awarded use of the See It Safely scheme which demonstrates that safety forms the foundation for the re-opening plan.”
