The closure was announced on the cinema's Twitter account at about 3pm today.

The tweet read: "**POWER CUT** We are currently closed due to a power cut. Further news as and when."

But just over an hour later it was announced, again on Twitter, that the cinema was once again open for business.

The second tweet read: "**WE'RE BACK!** Power is back on."

The cinema is based in The Valley retail park on Eagley Brook Way, Bolton.
