The cinema has gone from strength to strength in that time, giving Whitby residents and visitors regular access to a modern digital cinema screening the latest films.

Now to mark the cinema’s 10th birthday, 32 of the Pavilion’s most popular films of the past 10 years will battle it out in a World Cup-style tournament to discover Whitby’s favourite film.

The winning film will be reshown as part of The Pavilion’s reopening programme in the New Year.
