New cultural centre for Chester

New cultural centre for Chester

A former cinema is to be transformed into a £37.5m theatre, library and cinema complex in Chester.

Built in 1936, the Grade II listed cinema is to be restored and converted into a contemporary city library, including a café, study spaces and a 120-seat screen located on the former cinema balcony. An 800-seat theatre will be housed in a new building, linked to the existing by open foyer spaces.

Fully equipped to receive touring productions, the main theatre auditorium will also convert into a 600-seat venue to support Chester-based productions. A separate 150-seat studio will provide flexible rehearsal and education space.

Architects Bennetts Associates and Kier Construction have been chosen to transform the former Odeon cinema into a cultural centre for the city. The architects, which were appointed in June 2012 to produce the concept design for the new cultural complex, will begin detailed design work almost immediately. Kier is expecting to start work on site in February 2015.
