Planning permission has been granted
Updated: Jul 31, 2020
We are delighted to confirm that full planning permission and Listed Building consent have been granted for The Parade Cinema. It feels very positive to be sharing this good news and we are very grateful to all our supporters.
As you know our aim is to bring an independent, community-focused cinema to the heart of Marlborough – we want to create a friendly, informal & exciting place for everyone to enjoy. Renovation of the United Reformed Chapel and Manse will begin later this summer with an expected opening in September 2021.
As you can imagine, there are many regulations and challenges in converting a listed chapel to a cinema as well as the Manse to a commercial premises with catering facilities. Our team of architects, builders, surveyors and craftsman will be working hard to restore and repurpose these buildings to create a comfortable and independent cinema with locally sourced artisan food & drink.
There are many ways to be more involved with this exciting project. You can become a ‘Friend’ of the cinema and also ‘Sponsor a Seat’. Our Friends programme includes early booking benefits, discounts on tickets, food & drink, newsletters, invitations and much, much more!
