Ever been wandering around, looking at designer clothes and fancy makeup, and desperately fancied watching a film?

Well, no longer shall you have to stop your shopping and schlep to the nearest cinema, for Selfridges will soon open their very own movie theatre, right inside their flagship store on London’s Oxford Street.

The cinema will have three screens, two with 80 seats and one with 30, and will be operated by Olympic Studios.

There will be an entrance directly from the store as well as one from Duke Street, so you can pop in on a browse around central or midway through your posh shopping trip. The cinema will also have a private screening room and an underground bar. Fancy.

Opening in November, the venue will be showing new releases including Frozen 2 and Le Mans 66 as well as independent features. So it’s just like any other cinema, except it’s in a Selfridges, so it’s likely to be quite luxe.

Selfridges Managing Director Simon Forstrer said: ‘We are delighted to announce the launch of our very own Selfridges cinema within our London Oxford Street store later this year.

‘For us this is a very exciting yet natural extension to what Selfridges does, which is to provide customers with an extraordinary experience all year round.’

We’ve asked the Selfridges team for more details, namely the price of cinema tickets and information about their popcorn offering, and will update this article when we hear back.

Until then, mark November in your diary, as that’s when The Cinema at Selfridges will be opening. Prepare for many dates to take place at this location.
