Work is set to get underway this month on a cinema in Northallerton, the latest phase of the £17m Treadmills scheme.
The Everyman Cinema is the latest phase of the £17m Treadmills scheme being delivered by Central Northallerton Development Company Ltd (CNDCL), a joint venture between Hambleton District Council and Yorkshire developer Wykeland Group.
The Everyman Cinema will be built on the northern part of the Treadmills site, the home of the former Northallerton prison, just behind the high street. With 35 cinemas across the country, the independent cinema group offers a high quality experience with luxurious venues and sofa-like seats where filmgoers can enjoy a glass of wine and a slice of freshly made pizza served to their seats.
The 11,000sq ft cinema will be located above three new-build restaurant units which will look onto a new public square as the centrepiece of Treadmills. Open every day, it will have four screens with a total of 276 seats as well as a restaurant and licensed bar.
The Treadmills project is supported by the York & North Yorkshire Local Enterprise Partnership, which has secured investment of £1.8m from the government’s Local Growth Fund for the redevelopment and fit-out of C4DI and a further £675,00 from the government’s Getting Building Fund for the Campus@Northallerton currently being developed on the site.
Phase three of the project is being part funded with £4.75m from the government’s Future High Street Fund which was awarded to Northallerton earlier this year.
The cinema is expected to open next summer.
