With the thermometer set to race past 30 degrees in the coming days, all the auditoriums at the High Street cinema have their temperatures closely controlled.

So it’s the perfect time to head along, including Meerkat Movies 2-for-1 customers, and lose yourself in the fantasy of the big screen.

And among the films on offer will be The Railway Children Return, which opens on Friday (July 15) and is sure to be popular among families, especially with the summer holidays also looming large.

A sequel to the 1970 original, the story follows a group of children who are evacuated to a Yorkshire village during the Second World War, where they encounter a young soldier who, like them, is far away from home.

Also still showing are the likes of Elvis, Jurassic World: Dominion and the latest instalment of the Marvel Universe, Thor: Love and Thunder.
