Work on North Bay cinema to actually start
Developer signs deal to crack on next month
The process of building Scarborough’s new North bay cinema is set to begin in earnest next month.
Developers Benchmark have signed the agreement with The Light to operate the multiples, which will also house a number of restaurants and a multi-storey car park.
A spokesman for Benchmark Leisure, developers of the site, explained: “Work is set to start in October on the North Bay cinema complex that will be operated by leading national operator The Light Cinemas.
“An agreement is in the final stages of being completed with a contractor to build the development.
“Demolition work on the site has already taken place to ensure it can be opened as soon as possible.
“Starting work on the site will be a major milestone and confirms our commitment to delivering a new cinema complex here. It will be a great new facility for residents and visitors alike.
“We have had a lot of interest in the other units and we will be in a position to announce restaurant brands shortly.”
Keith Pullinger, chief executive of The Light Cinemas added: “We are delighted to commit to this exciting new development coming to Scarborough. The scheme is set to be a major leisure hub for the region and we are looking forward to opening our sevenscreen premium cinema.”
