Cinema Planning Permission is Boost for Preston

Monday, 14th November 2016

The City of Preston has received another major boost with planning approval for a new game-changing cinema as part of the £50m Markets Quarter development.

With 11 screens, including a large format experience screen and the very latest in cinema and entertainment technology, the new cinema will be a major draw for Preston, and Lancashire too.

Complementing the cinema experience will be a host of high quality restaurants – enabling Preston to offer a whole new visitor experience – served by a modern multi-storey car park.

Welcoming the approval of planning permission for the cinema, Councillor Peter Rankin – Leader of Preston City Council, said:

“The new cinema is a key element of growing Preston’s leisure offer and making the city centre an even better place to visit, enjoy and stay. We’re also looking at up to seven new restaurants and bars as part of the cinema development - bringing yet more vitality and difference to Preston. Add to this the huge investments in the former Post Office building, Preston Markets, the Guild Hall, the Bus Station, housing and city living, plus the railway station it is easy to see why Preston City Centre is fast becoming the place to invest, visit and live.”

Mike Horner – Regional Director for Muse Developments, said:

“We are making real progress and are delighted with the planning permission.  The Cinema and Market Quarter developments are hugely exciting, game-changing in fact for Preston. We will now continue to work hard to bring the development to fruition – we’ve already had huge interest from many top national restaurant chains wanting to be part of the scheme, so now’s the time to focus on making it happen.”

Keith Pullinger of The Light Cinema, added:

“This is an important milestone and we are thrilled at the prospect of our ambitious cinema plans for Preston being another step closer. Preston is a fantastic location for us and we are excited by the opportunities in the city."
