An exciting new cinema and five restaurant development is lined up for Doncaster's Civic and Cultural Quarter. Located next to Cast it will frame Sir Nigel Gresley Square and provide additional attractions to draw people into the Waterdale area. The plan is part of the overarching Urban Centre Masterplan which is rejuvenating Doncaster's town centre.
Work started on project in March 2019 and will be open in 2020.
The council own the site and have been working with cinema operator, Savoy. There has been interest in the development from local, national and international restaurant providers. Lindum are the main contractor for the scheme which has been backed by the Sheffield City Region.
The exciting development is one of the final pieces of the jigsaw to redevelop the Cultural and Civic Quarter and fulfil the vision outlined in the Urban Centre Masterplan. The square has been transformed into a destination area in recent years, with the £20 million investment in the Civic Office, £22 million investment in the CAST performance venue, and the £15 million investment in the new Central Library and Museum.
