Today, Campus West prides itself on offering world-class entertainment with a local, independent feel; its state-of-the-art cinema screens boast the best in modern sound and projection technology, where audiences can enjoy the latest movie releases. It also offers 'Event Cinema' with shows ranging from international theatre, and music to ballet, opera, and exhibitions on the big screen.
Campus West also has a roller-skating rink, a soft play and bouncy castle area for the little ones, and a modern café-bar.
Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council's Executive Member for Leisure and Community, Cllr Terry Mitchinson, comments:
"Campus West, in its many guises over the past 50 years, has always remained at the heart of our community. Our entertainment programme reflects the vibrant and diverse audience we serve.
"Now the venue has something special for all the family, whether that's enjoying a movie with a glass of wine or beer, jumping around in soft play or on the bouncy castle, or having fun at the roller rink, everyone is welcome. We're excited about our 50th anniversary, and we look forward to seeing everyone at our events throughout the year - not least our ever-popular panto!"
As part of the 50th anniversary schedule, visitors will be treated to themed events, culminating on the official birthday, 8 December, with the grand opening of Robin Hood.
