At any time of the year The Red Carpet remains a vibrant hub on Barton Marina. We stream live events from all over the world and are proud to welcome guests to sell out shows of art house and main stream films. Take a look at all the films and events that you can book at the moment…
Brunch is served from 10am until 11.45am; lunch from 12 noon until 3pm, antipasto menu from 3pm until 5pm and for our evening menu we take orders from 5pm until 8.30pm. We now have a daytime film and food offer consisting of a one course brunch, lunch or antipasto platter with a cinema ticket for £12.95. In the evening our popular two course film & food deal is available every evening for £27.95pp.
We are re-opening on Monday 27th July with a fantastic daytime film and food offer for just £12.95pp and plenty of measures in place to keep you safe during your visit. We really hope you return and support us and we look forward to welcoming you back after such a long time (it's been very quiet!). The cafe bar and films in the cinemas can now be booked.
Ten years ago we set out to build a small two screen cinema and cafe bar where people could enjoy a two course meal and a film under one roof. The idea of a meal and a film was nothing new but we did believe that people would enjoy it more if they could eat and chat in a relaxed atmosphere and then be invited to wander over to their screen and watch a film in a small, peaceful cinema in their especially reserved seats. We thought it was a romantic idea, enchanting...simple really. We were going to float through this on a wave of measured optimism, sound business experience and realistic goals and timescales.
Four years and four months later we looked exactly like a spectacular ‘Grand Designs’ style disaster. We had that slightly wild, forced, entrenched and delusional look about us all the time. We had purchased land without any finance, been through four rounds of planning, been turned down by 7 banks, sold everything we’d ever owned except a ten year old car, changed our architectural plans 53 times and along the way had picked up two digital projectors we didn’t know how to work. We had no home, no pension plan and no jobs. We never slept, we barely ate, we regularly had meetings at 4am, we were, definitely, without doubt, completely bonkers.
That was six years ago; six incredible and quite scary, life changing years. Then we opened the doors and the support we have received was simply unbelievable. We have certainly felt every bump along the road, some more brutally bone shaking than others but we’re also incredibly proud of The Red Carpet and its place within the local community.
To everyone who chooses The Red Carpet, we can’t thank you enough for your support.
