The High Street venue is holding kids and adults tournaments of Dragon Ball FighterZ on August 16, the day before the new Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero film is out.Mark Gallagher, cinema boss said: “During the last lockdown when we were closed, I hooked my PlayStation up to one of the big screens and it was a phenomenal.

"I’ve had it in my mind that I wanted to do something for the public and this is the first time something obvious has jumped out at me.

There are just 32 places available in each tournament so book your place online now here.

There will be an entry fee, every penny of which will go into the the prize pot and first prize is £100 cash for the kids and £200 for adults – plus runners-up prizes.

Mark added: “If this is a success, we’ve already got the next one in mind, and it’ll be before the end of the school summer holidays.”

The big new film out this week is Brad Pitt and Sandra Bullock in the action thriller Bullet Train (15).

Based on the Japanese novel, Maria Beetle by Kotaro Isaka, five assassins find themselves on a fast-moving bullet train from Tokyo to Morioka with only a few stops in between.

They discover their missions are not unrelated to one another.

The question becomes, who will make it off the train alive and what awaits them at the terminal station?
