Ellisons Solicitors recently acted in the acquisition of two sites for Backyard Cinema Ltd (“Backyard”). Backyard launched nearly a decade ago and offers customers an immersive and magical experience to enjoy their favourite films. 2022 was a year in which Backyard went from strength to strength opening new sites in Wandsworth and Depot Mayfield in Manchester.

Senior Associate, Antony Mao and Solicitor, Rosanna Sayers of the Commercial Property Team worked closely with Backyard and provide advice to ensure that each site was tailored to the bespoke offering that Backyard intend to provide their customers.

Client, James Milligan, Director of Backyard commented “We have had a long-standing partnership with Ellisons, and have always been pleased with the results they have helped us achieve. In particular, their expertise in navigating the leasing aspects of new venue acquisitions has been invaluable to our business.
