BEFORE AND AFTER: What the new cinema will look like from the outside

Pat and Beryl Scott, owners of S&B, gained planning permission for the venue in September, and officially completed the sale of the building on Friday, November 22.

With keys in-hand, the experienced pair are set to hit the ground running, with the hopes of opening the new entertainment venue by Easter next year.

The team already run two successful cinemas, one in Burnham on Sea, where they live, and the other in Frome.

Mr Scott said: "We are really chuffed to have received planning permission.

"We are in the process of beginning to start the work.

"We hope to be open next year, around Easter time.

"I've been in the cinema industry for most of my life, me and my wife are directors of the company."

The new artist impression images show how the three screen cinema will look, and how the outside of the building will appear once works are completed.
