Luxury cinema set to open at Royal William Yard

A whole new cinematic and leisure experience will soon be unveiled in Plymouth, as Everyman confirms its arrival at Royal William Yard this year. The new luxury cinema is currently under construction within the iconic Grade I listed Melville building, and is expected to open its doors this summer. 

This opening will mark the arrival of Everyman – which is an independent network of boutique cinemas – to the South West. It will take up residence in the grand Georgian Melville building at the centre of Royal William Yard, which has been brought back to life by regeneration specialists Urban Splash.  

A busy programme of work over the coming months will see the historic space transformed to create a waterfront cinema like no other, blending classic architecture with a modern interior. Everyman is known for its unique lifestyle approach; offering next-level customer service in a stylish and sumptuous setting.            

Emily Jones, Commercial Director of Urban Splash, said: “Years in the planning, we are thrilled to announce that Everyman will soon premiere its incredible offering at Royal William Yard. Becoming the first home to Everyman in the South West is a big deal and it couldn’t be a better setting; surrounded by the sea and spoilt for choice for places to eat, drink and stay. Already a hugely popular destination, Royal William Yard now becomes the place to be for leisure, with a huge amount to discover and do, day and night.”
