Sleaford town centre will get a new £4 million three-screen cinema with a restaurant and food court.
Some £1.5 million had already been dedicated for the regeneration project by North Kesteven District Council and they authority has now agreed an extra £2.5 million.
On top of the 300 seat cinema, plans also include public open space and a footbridge over the River Slea, connecting Money’s Yard to the Market Place.
It is estimated that the local spend on cinema tickets could be £750,000 a year which would generate an extra £1.5 million in spending on other goods and services in the town without including food and drink.
The investment was unanimously supported by Full Council last night (Thursday July 11).
