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.”
