Derby County’s preferred partner Showcase Cinema de Lux, based at the Intu Centre in Derby, has re-opened.

Cinemas, alongside other businesses, have been given the green light to begin reopening following a suspension of service because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

And you can fall in love with cinema again with some all-time classics and recent favourites on the big screen for just £5 a ticket – with the doors reopening in Derby earlier this month. The cinema will be showing all-time classics and recent favourites on the big screen, including films such as Back to the Future, 1917, Grease, Labyrinth, The Empire Strikes Back, Parasite, Pulp Fiction, Shaun of the Dead, The Shining, Terminator 2, The Matrix, The Shawshank Redemption and The Greatest Showman.

Then the new blockbusters will follow, with great films ahead in the coming weeks and months including Mulan, Tenet, A Quiet Place Part 2, and James Bond is back in No Time To Die.

Of course, the cinema experience will be a little different to what you will have become used to.

The Showcase Cinema de Lux team have been working hard preparing for their re-opening by making all their sites as ‘Showcase Safe’ as possible for the comfort of both staff and guests, which has always been their top priority.

The ‘Be Showcase Safe’ experience includes:


Do not enter the cinema if you are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms.

Please book in advance online and use contactless where possible for any transactions in cinema – you can also purchase your favourite food and drink online to pick up when you get to the cinema.

The wearing of a face covering is encouraged.

Please avoid entering the cinema until 10 minutes before the film’s scheduled start time.


Hand sanitiser stations and anti-bacterial wipes available for guests to use.

Observe social distancing throughout the cinema, including within the auditorium.

Protective screens have been installed at each till point.

Using your booking confirmation email, you can now scan this on your smartphone to enter your film.


Certain seats will not be available to be booked to allow for social distancing between parties.

There will be fewer shows each day with increased time between shows to allow for thorough cleaning of the auditorium.

Air purifying systems are to be installed which kill airborne viruses.

Where possible, help by leaving the screen directly into the car park at the cinemas that have them.


Employees will be temperature checked before their shift and will have appropriate PPE.

All staff have undertaken enhanced safety and cleaning training.


Showcase Cinema de Lux are introducing an enhanced cleaning regime with high touch point areas cleaned every 30 minutes.

A new non-chemical anti-viral spray used on every seat after every show, and at the end of each day.

Everyone at Showcase Cinema de Lux hope that you and your loved ones are healthy and hope to see you back at Showcase soon!

Please Note: £5 tickets for all previously released films. Standard prevailing ticket pricing applies to new film releases.
