A NINE-screen cinema complex with a total seating capacity of 1315 patrons, licensed bar, lounge area and arcade, will finally come to life after the Queanbeyan-Palerang Regional Council conditionally approved the development application.Mayor Tim Overall said this is an exciting project for the Queanbeyan CBD, and for the region.
“The community has been talking about having a cinema in Queanbeyan for years and Council’s approval of the development means the community’s aspirations for a cinema complex is one step closer,” he said.
“The development will also bring visitors to Queanbeyan, benefit surrounding businesses, and give people more reasons to be in the CBD and to visit some of the many great businesses we have in our city centre.”
The cinema will be located on the first floor of 30 Morisset Street, the ground floor of which is currently leased by Kmart. Approval was granted for alterations and additions to this building to accommodate the cinema.
