Derelict Margate cinema to reopen creating 171 jobs

A derelict Art Deco cinema in Margate will be brought back into use with the help of £1.8m of government funding, according to BBC News

The funding, to restore the cinema on the Dreamland site in Kent, has come from the Coastal Communities Fund.

The same funding pot will help to upgrade Whitehaven in £450k project announced yesterday.

The project, which will create 171 jobs, will see Thanet District Counci bring an “iconic but derelict” Art Deco building back to life.

The scheme includes creating a commercially-viable, high-quality restaurant in the 1930s Grade II listed building, and restoration of the original cinema facade.
