Scarborough Cinema Still Happening

Scarborough Cinema Still Happening

Published by Jon Burke at 6:30am 22nd June 2018.

Scarborough could see a new cinema complex by the end of next summer.

We told you at the end of last year how a new target opening date had been set for Easter 2019,   but developers Benchmark Leisure says there have been problems.

They've centred around satisfying the operator's requirement to have high street restaurants chains as part of the development.

Under new plans, it will have 5 or 6 screens instead of 7, local restaurants rather than High Street franchises - and 75 apartments rather than around 30.

Some have doubted whether the project would ever get off the ground, but Chief Executive of Benchmark, Roland Duce, says he wants it open next year.

He's been speaking to Yorkshire Coast Radio's Jon Burke..

The original plans looked attractive and would encourage people to the town however the new plans have no appeal whatsoever and Scarborough's need for a cinema should not be at the cost of a second rate development. If the original plans can't be delivered then there should be a new tender process.
Let's not be held to ransom by this developer how wants above all profit from flats.

I agree, profit before people again!
