Families can enjoy free movies every Saturday throughout the school summer holidays at an historic cinema in Ilkeston.

The ‘Saturday Morning Matinees’ promotion will see big screen family favourites shown at the Scala Cinema on Pimlico each Saturday morning at 10am in August as part of a link-up between Erewash Borough Council and Reel Cinemas.

Councillor Geoffrey Smith, the council’s lead member for regeneration and planning, said: “We are delighted to be able to offer residents and visitors alike this fabulous opportunity to enjoy Saturday morning matinees of some great family films – and all for free.

“This is a unique tie-up with Reel Cinemas and we are grateful to them for working with us.”

There will be four more Saturday screenings during August, including The Lego Movie on August 9.
