It has been officially announced by Fantom Events that the opening episode of the new season of Doctor Who will receive a release in cinemas next month.
12 new episodes have been filming in Cardiff since June 2016, with Pearl Mackie and Matt Lucas joining Capaldi as the Doctor’s latest companions, Bill Potts and Nardole.
Doctor Who Season 10’s opener premieres on TV on Saturday 15 April and it will then be shown in US cinemas on Monday 17 April and Wednesday 19 April.
Tickets go on sale on Friday 10 March.
The run time is listed as 1 hour and 40 minutes. This is likely to also include exclusive bonus content, as with previous Doctor Who and Sherlock cinema releases, but based on this total run time it seems we can assume that this is a feature-length episode and not just a regular 45-minute story.
A cinema release in the UK and elsewhere worldwide has not yet been announced.
It emerged this week that titles for the first five episodes may have been hidden in the latest trailer.

Peter Capaldi confirmed last month that he will be departing Doctor Who in this year’s Christmas special.
Steven Moffat revealed recently that Peter Capaldi “came close to staying” for a fourth season as the Doctor.
