A Norwich cinema has won big after the team walked down the red carpet at a national awards ceremony. 

Cinema City in St Andrews Street, which boasts three screens, scooped a trio of accolades at The Picturehouse Awards Ceremony earlier this month.

One of these was for regional general manager of the year, for sites outside of London, awarded to Justin Holmes.

He joined the team in May 2022 after a varied career, which included working as an area manager for Odeon.

Cinema City also won the regional cinema of the year award and Jenny Allison, who has worked there since 2014, was highly commended in the marketing manager category. 

Mr Holmes said: "I am so proud and honoured to be a part of such a special, hard-working team.

"Their passion for the cinema and its heritage has blown me away.

"We have a steadily growing events business and are working to do more and more education work."

The awards ceremony took place at the Picturehouse branch in Ashford, Kent and celebrated achievements in Picturehouse cinemas nationwide.
