A luxury cinema brand is set to launch a state-of-the-art four-screen venue in Durham city centre.
Everyman, which already has another North East venue in Newcastle city centre, has announced that the new 300 seat picture house will be located at Durham's Milburngate and will open this winter.
The company will join other high-profile occupiers including Premier Inn, Bar + Block and BrewDog at the new £150m entertainment complex on the banks of the River Wear.

Everyman expressed its delight at soon being able to call the historic city home, vowing to bring a 'modern twist' to the medieval city.
A spokesperson said: " Durham is home to the third oldest University in England, a medieval city with a modern twist, creating the perfect setting for customers to enjoy Everyman’s redefined cinema experience.
"The new venue boasts state of the art technology, with four extensive screens and over three-hundred seats. Everyman prides itself on luxury, and the new Durham venue is no exception, filled with plush velvet sofas and armchairs designed for maximum comfort to offer the ultimate film experience."
The premium cinema brand is renowned for its extensive food and drink menu which can be ordered to a customer's seat while watching any showing.
Everyman confirmed that the new venue will be operating a food and drink menu including a full bar.
Their spokesperson added: "Allow Everyman’s friendly staff to take your order from the extensive food and drink menu, and bring this directly to your seat, as you relax on a sofa for two and indulge in a variety of blockbuster films, documentaries and live screenings.
"Everyman promises a premium experience from start to finish and offers something for everyone, from hand-stretched pizzas to small plates, including hot honey halloumi, buttermilk chicken and tempura prawns.
"There is also a selection of vegan dishes available including pizza topped with chargrilled artichoke, sun dried tomato and plant-based mozzarella.
"The new venue will also be operating a full bar, with speciality wine and beer, delicious cocktails and a range of alcohol-free drinks to make for a decadent evening without the hangover.
"And for those with a sweet tooth, there’s a range of milkshakes, freshly baked cookie dough and even the option to build your own sundae."
