Hollywood graces new 4D cinema at CONKERS

CONKERS, the award-winning visitor attraction in the heart of The National Forest, has welcomed some Hollywood magic when British actor, Stephen Graham and his family visited the 4D cinema and enjoyed some of the fantastic outdoor activities including the Hi and Lo Ropes experience.

Stephen has starred in a range of Hollywood films and major US and UK TV dramas including Pirates of the Caribbean, Gangs of New York, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Public Enemies, The Damned United, Boardwalk Empire and This Is England. He and his family live locally in Ibstock, Leicestershire.

The 80-seat 4D cinema at CONKERS shows films that will stimulate all five senses and has welcomed over 20,000 visitors since its opening in April 2017.

Stephen Graham commented: "CONKERS is lots of fun for all the family, a great day out and the 4D cinema was incredible.... we loved it!”

Chris Sturdy, Regional Operations Manager at CONKERS added: “It was a pleasure to welcome Stephen and his family to CONKERS. Although our 4D cinema has been very successful with visitors, we believe that this is the first time that a true Hollywood actor has come for the full, multi-sensory cinematic experience!”
