Wirksworth was without a cinema from 1967, when the original town cinema (now Stone's Builders Merchants) closed its doors for the last time. We thought that was long enough.
The Northern Light Cinema brings back the glamour of the big screen to our town, providing a cinema fit for Wirksworth - charming, quaint, quirky, friendly, sometimes challenging but always good fun.
The auditorium seats 52 in style, with 3 deluxe vintage sofas on the back row, 6 eclectic armchairs and 40 refurbished 1930s cinema seats. The bar blends the best of British with a touch of Manhattan.
Esther and Paul, who have both lived and worked in the town for over 17 years, have put their all into transforming the former Electrical Showroom into a truly unique venue. And along with great local support and a fantastic team of staff and volunteers, they can now say that the glamour of the big screen is truly back in town!
