A new planning application is seeking permission to open a cinema in Alfreton.
The application, submitted to Amber Valley Borough Council, asks for permission to change part of the Genesis Entertainment Centre, on King Street, into a cinema.
The application, submitted by Cinegogh Ltd, outlines a proposal to change part of the first floor of the venue into a three-screen cinema.
A design and access statement attached to the application says: “The Genesis Centre was originally built with the design in mind for cinema although this never came into fruition.
“Our compact three screen cinema would be a welcome addition to the town of Alfreton where the nearest multi-screen cinema is nearly 11 miles away.
“The space is already used for a variety of uses, including dance classes and wedding receptions. The complex includes bowling and a gymnasium and is already a leisure destination.”
