New cinema for Northallerton as construction work begins at former prison
A Yorkshire developer has announced that work has started on the next phase of transformation of a former prison.
Central Northallerton Development Company Ltd (CNDCL), a joint venture between Hambleton District Council and leading Yorkshire developer Wykeland Group, has begun work on a new Everyman cinema at the former Northallerton Prison.
The cinema, at the £17m Treadmills development, will have four screens with a total of 276 seats, as well as its own restaurant and licensed bar.
PDR Construction has been contracted to build the cinema and three new restaurant units, with doors expected to open next summer.
Jonathan Stubbs, development director of Wykeland Group, commented: “This announcement heralds the beginning of the next exciting phase of Treadmills.
“Everyman is one of the UK’s most prestigious cinema operators and its venues are destination attractions, drawing filmgoers from many miles around.
“The new cinema will provide local people with a high-quality leisure experience, deliver a major boost to the evening economy in Northallerton and enhance the town’s appeal to visitors.
“This latest stage of construction will also create three new restaurant units that will pave the way for further investment and job creation on site.”
A spokesperson for Everyman said: “We are pleased to announce that Everyman will be opening soon as part of Northallerton’s historic Treadmills redevelopment.
“We are excited to be sharing our unique brand of carefully curated film, warm hospitality and comfortable setting with the local community.”
