Hollywood Cinemas, a chain of East England Cinemas, has been forced into administration.
The 30-year old business has been suffering from deteriorating trading conditions throughout the year.
Parker Andrews and Nick Cusack have been appointed as Administrators. They remark the progress that so far, a sale has been completed for Dereham’s site, with offers in place for the sites remaining at Norwich and Great Yarmouth.
Trevor Wicks, the companies director, noted many factors which have led up to the administration. These being, a poor 2018 from the beast from the east, the world cup, the hot summer, a number of poorly performing films and higher levels of competition in the local areas.
Many jobs are at risk, including 28 part-time jobs.
