Film lovers can exhale after it was announced a much-loved Wimbledon cinema won't be closing anytime soon.

It was announced yesterday that record store HMV in The Broadway would be forced to shut following Canadian retailer Sunrise Records' purchase of the company.

This brought with it a lot of memories and farewells from people on social media.

But attention quickly turned to the 2nd floor of the building, where the HMV Curzon Cinema calls home, to see if it too would face the chop.

Much to the delight of many, the cinema took it upon itself to squash any rumors, taking to Twitter last night to address the issue.

"We'd like to assure all of our guests that Curzon Wimbledon is open for business as usual," the account for the cinema posted.
