The Point MK Opens!

Hot on the heels of some the biggest blockbusters of the 1980’s including The Empire Strikes Back, Beverly Hills Cop, E.T. and Ghostbusters, The Point MK opened to great fanfare 3rd November 1985.

The Point MK was the first true multiplex to grace the shores of the UK, with top of the line cinematic equipment, outstanding bars and leisure facilities and perhaps what would become one of Milton Keynes’ most endearing landmarks – the red ziggurat, a beacon for the city complete with neon lighting that could be seen as far away as Northampton.
