A CHAIN has been secured to open a flagship multi-screen cinema and state-of-the-art bowling facility at the £70 million Tollgate Village retail and leisure park.
Tollgate Partnership Limited has announced The Light will run the new venue at its hotly anticipated development with work set to begin later this year.
It is due to be completed before the end of 2021 with the cinema and bowling alley between them creating 70 new jobs.
The cinema will offer independent and mainstream films, including live theatre, music, opera and will also host special events.
Daniel Watts and Jayne Gee, directors of Tollgate Partnership Limited, said: “We are delighted to have reached agreement with The Light. “We have been on the look out for some time for the right company to work with, that would match our aspirations.
“We were blown away by The Light’s Stockport cinema and after meeting the co-founder Keith Pullinger we knew immediately this was the perfect operator for Tollgate Village.
“The Light is exciting, innovative and forward-thinking brand and they understand our vision for the area.
“We have had approaches from other leisure operators, restaurateurs and retailers for Tollgate Village and hope to be in a position to announce more news soon.”
