Ian Ward, General Manager of The Broadway, said: “One of the challenges is to drive the evening economy going forward. We’ve recently had more news about the former Odeon which means that is now going forward, and St George’s Hall will be re-opening soon, and you have Sunbridge Wells and City Park, so things are going in the right direction.

“It is important we are recognised for more than just shopping, this lets us provide a more rounded offer. We need to give people a reason to come to the city other than just to shop, and this cinema is a perfect example of that.”

On the ground floor level of the building there are a number of units that have planning permission for cafes, bars and restaurants. Currently there have been no official announcements, although Gourmet Burger Kitchen applied for an alcohol license for one unit in 2016, and Mexican food chain Tortilla has submitted a planning application for an extractor flue for another unit.
