A formal announcement was made this week to name the operators of the proposed six-screen cinema on Elwick Road.
The cinema, which is part of the development plans for Elwick Place in Ashford town centre, will be operated by Picturehouse, Cineworld's boutique cinema brand.
"This partnership with Cineworld represents a further major step forward for Elwick Place.
Cineworld’s commitment to bring the boutique Picturehouse brand to Ashford town centre will make a real difference to the town’s economy, including in the evening. Alongside the new restaurants it will strengthen the existing leisure offer, drive growth and benefit the town as a whole."
Gary Bourne, Director at Stanhope
Further more, a submission has been made to Ashford Borough Council’s planning department that proposes an extension to the current Cineworld cinema complex at the Eureka Leisure Park near J9 of the M20.
The proposed extension at Eureka, which includes an IMAX screen, is said to complement the proposed six-screen town centre cinema at Elwick Place, permission for which was granted in December 2015.
