Theatre-goers were turned away from a cinema on Saturday afternoon after a power cut caused it to close temporarily. 

The Arc Cinema in Great Yarmouth was seen turning people away as it lost power.

Power has now been restored in the area after engineers fixed the faulty cable.

The cinema confirmed the issue on a social media post that read "Unfortunately due to power failure, we’re unable to show any films for the afternoon. Any pre-bookings please contact us. We’re working on this issue. Sorry for any inconvenience."

UK Power Networks say they were first called at around midday and around 26 customers were affected in the NR30 2 area. 

Many of these customers are businesses situated along Great Yarmouth Beach. 

A UK Power Network spokesperson said, "We are sorry for any inconvenience caused, our customer service team will continue to update customers who have already contacted us regarding their power cut."

Arc Cinema posted on Facebook on Sunday morning that they were still unable to open due to a faulty cable and that they were trying to resolve the issue as quickly as possible.
