like to further widen the range of films and live entertainment
we offer, so a new third cinema screen at the back of the building
behind our current two screens would be ideal," Pat told

is granted by the local authority, then the expansion of the cinema

around £150,000. It will include a new projection room plus
a £50,000 projector so would be a big investment."
extra screen will give us more flexibility in programming to allow
us to carry on showing movies that are still popular after their
first fortnight's screenings. We also hope to show more of the
live music and opera events which launched earlier this year and
are proving so popular."
