Plans for new independent cinema in city.
A new independent cinema will get its reels rolling in a shopping centre, under new plans.
Ambitious proposals have been unveiled for a multi-screen cinema and restaurant in the former Argos store in Wolverhampton's Wulfrun Centre.
The owners of the Wulfrun, LCP, which links to the Mander Centre, are keen to provide the complex with a boost in a bid to attract more visitors amid sliding footfall. LCP said it had held discussions with several independent cinema operators and plans have now been lodged with the city council.
The 350-seat cinema would offer a "high-quality viewing experience", LCP said, and would be joined by a restaurant facing onto Cleveland Street, creating dozens of jobs. It would also be made available for functions.
The old Argos store has been empty since the retailer became part of the Sainsbury's superstore in 2017.
