AN independent cinema in Richmond is offering Bond fans the chance to be among the first to see the latest 007 film with a special midnight screening.

The highly-anticipated No Time To Die will be Bond actor Daniel Craig’s last outing as the spy and the film is being released at cinemas on September 30.

The Station in Richmond will launch the film with a special midnight showing on that date and is predicting it will be hugely popular among cinema-goers.

Dan Westgarth, general manager at The Station Cinema, said: “Bond films are always incredibly popular and this one is even more hotly-anticipated than ever given the delays to its release due to Covid-19."

In addition to the midnight screening, The Station Cinema has teamed up with the luxury hotel, The Wensleydale Heifer in West Witton, to offer 007 fans the chance to win a Bond Experience.

Anyone who watches No Time To Die at The Station will be offered the chance to enter a free prize draw to win a night in the Heifer’s very own, and unique, James Bond Room.

The room features a circular bed, exclusive Bond memorabilia and other 007 touches.

As well as an overnight stay for two, the lucky winner will also receive a themed dinner for two in the Heifer’s award-winning luxury restaurant as well as vodka-martinis, shaken not stirred.

Dan said: “What better way to celebrate Bond finally hitting our screens from September 30 than to offer everyone who watches it here a chance to win this exclusive prize and to live like 007 for the evening.”

Lewis Moss, owner of The Wensleydale Heifer, said: “We know how disappointed Bond fans were when No Time To Die was delayed.

"At the Heifer, we love Bond so much we created our very own James Bond room which is incredibly popular.

“We wanted to do something to mark the release of the film as well as support our local independent cinema at the same time.

"We can’t wait to see the film and will be queuing up with our popcorn alongside all the other die-hard 007 fans from September 30.”

All people need to do to enter the competition give their name and email address on the special competition form they’ll receive when they visit The Station to watch Bond.
