People who had their films interrupted said the incident - which they believed to be a problem with a projector - happened at about 2.30pm and a fire engine arrived.

They told the Advertiser their films were not being restarted and they had been advised to contact customer services.

One of those evacuated said it was: “Just a quick evacuation and we were told it was not a drill.”

Staff told the Advertiser the cinema was back to normal and was carrying on with its planned programme for the rest of the day.
