Cinema boss Mark Gallagher has hired a replica Top Gun fighter jet cockpit to park outside the cinema for the event on May 27 – although the film itself opens at the High Street venue on May 25.

Mark said: “This will be our fourth fan event since opening and customers will sit inside wearing a replica Maverick pilots helmet and have a professional photo plus receive souvenir posters, postcards and a bumper sticker for the car.

"We’ve been planning this event for three months – getting hold of a mobile fighter jet cockpit wasn’t easy.”

This replica Top Gun fighter jet cockpit will be landing outside the Arc Cinema later this month

More immediately, the big new film out this week is Benedict Cumberbatch, Xochitl Gomez, Patrick Stewart and Chiwetel Ejiofor in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (12A).

After the events of Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: No Way Home, Dr. Stephen Strange continues his research on the Time Stone.
