- Everyman Media Group says it has has performed in line with market forecasts in the first six months and, due to new sites, a significant increase in the financial performance of the group year on year is expected.

The group ended the six months to 30 June operating 17 cinemas, with Bristol having opened during the period. Of the four Odeon sites acquired in 2015, Esher, Gerrards Cross and Barnet have now been fully refurbished, and are all trading well.

The group has just received Listed Building Consent for its venue in Muswell Hill allowing works to commence on the final stage of this refurbishment. The group's existing sites continue to trade in line with Directors' expectations.

The group has continued to find attractive new venue opportunities for future investment. As previously announced contracts have now been exchanged on venues at Horsham, Durham and Wokingham.

Additionally, in the run-up to the opening of the three screen Kings Cross venue in late 2017, a one screen temporary venue will open on 15 July.
