YOU can now have your say on what the new Regent cinema in Redcar could look like – as proposed designs have been unveiled.
The building’s façade and a fly-through video of the building are now available to view as part of the consultation for the project, inviting comments from members of the public.
In November 2019, the council’s Cabinet approved an allocation of £9million from the Tees Valley Combined Authority Investment Fund for the redevelopment of the cinema.
It was agreed in principle that a new modern facility will be developed at the current site on Redcar seafront showing new film releases as well as more diverse screenings.
The venue has been designed to seat nearly 200 people in three screens with 34, 56 and 94 seats respectively. The cinema would also include a licensed café bar with spectacular sea views.
Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council is encouraging people to see the plans and to give their views through the following ways:
the council’s website at www.redcar-cleveland.gov.uk;
any of the borough’s libraries where there will be posters and a box to submit a hard copy of the survey;
the Redcar & Cleveland Leisure and Community Heart, where designs and a model of the cinema are on display. [The display will be open from 1pm on Monday 6 January to Friday 17 January during the building’s opening times]
The consultation ends on Friday 17th January.
