The exciting six screen Savoy cinema and five restaurant complex is another development in Doncaster's Civic and Cultural Quarter. Located next to Cast it frames Sir Nigel Gresley Square and provides additional attractions to draw people into town and the Waterdale area.
The impressive cinema and restaurant development is an important piece of the jigsaw in the Civic and Cultural Quarter. It is also part of the wider Urban Centre Masterplan which is seeing numerous major projects help revitalise Doncaster's town centre and make it a highly attractive place to live, visit, work and invest in.
The Civic and Cultural Quarter has become an attractive destination in recent years with the creation of Sir Nigel Gresley Square, the new Civic Offices, the CAST performance venue, and the £15 million investment in Danum Gallery, Library and Museum. New homes have gone up and there is also a new Doncaster University Technical College (UTC).
The council own the site and have been working closely with cinema operator, Savoy. There has also been interest in the development from local, national and international restaurant providers given its prime site and location.
It has been backed by the Sheffield City Region with £635,000 of Sheffield City Region Local Growth Funding (LGF).
The main contractor is Lindum. The artist impressions are courtesy of the Harris Partnership.
