Cineworld will open a 1,100 seat, nine screen cinema which will provide a key draw for the £20m leisure and catering development. The 60,000 sq ft extension will also include five restaurants and a pedestrian boulevard.
Martin Breeden, asset management director for intu, said: “We have got a catchment of 1.1 million people which is hugely under-served in high quality leisure and catering destinations so we are really looking forward to getting this project on site and open. It will be great for intu Potteries and for the city of Stoke-on-Trent.”
Intu is in advanced negotiations on all the catering units. The development is due to start early next year with completion due mid-2015.
