A SEVEN screen cinema complex could be opened in the city centre in the next two years if Limerick City Council gives its approval.
Developer Michael Daly of Fordmount Developments, has confirmed that he has now bought the remainder of the properties on Bedford Row and wants to open the first cinema in the city for nearly a decade.
Under the planned â‚¬20million redevelopment of the area, fashion outlets will continue on one side of Bedford Row, with food outlets overhead.
It is hoped the opposite site of the pedestrianised street will comprise of a seven or eight screen cinema complex.
“We expect to have the planning application in before Christmas and have it ready for next September. We really want to create a leisure area to revitalise the city centre. We (Fordmount Developments] have 150 apartments rented out so we need to provide something for people,” said Mr Daly.
The first premise purchased by Fordmount Developments in July was Nevada Smiths pub on the corner of Bedford Row and Henry Street. Other outlets including Cafe on the Row and Figaro have now been acquired.
Finally! It’s probably the single most important thing you can do to bring a bit of life back to the city. But I hope that this whole block is redeveloped, not just those few buildings, especially along the O’Connell Street side.
