"It is all about the experience, a pint in a pub is worth two at home. There is something magical about enjoying a film with an audience. That is why we are here."

Gerald Parkes, Founder

Parkway Entertainment Company Ltd. was founded in 1983, by Gerald Parkes and his wife Denise. The business has always been fiercely independent, seeking to show the widest range of films and events in a genuinely welcoming environment.

The business has grown to be one of the most successful independent cinema operations in the country, with cinemas in Cleethorpes, Louth, Barnsley, and Beverley.


Gerald Parkes was proud to receive an MBE for services to the UK cinema industry in 2013.

Gerald sadly passed away shortly after receiving his MBE, but the business goes on from strength to strength with Denise, sons Gerrard & Richard and all of our awesome staff.
