Cinema to open at Dolphin Shopping Centre

Planning permission has been granted for new cinema at Dolphin Shopping Centre, meaning Poole residents don’t have to travel outside the centre to see the latest blockbuster movies.

Permission has been granted by the Borough of Poole to convert existing space into a nine-screen cinema.

The Dolphin Shopping Centre in Poole is pleased to announce planning permission has been granted by the Borough of Poole to convert existing space into a nine-screen cinema. Construction work is expected to start later this year.

The cinema development is part of the Dolphin’s £26 million programme of investment with Legal & General, who bought the centre in 2013 and is carrying out an 18-month improvement programme.

John Grinnell, centre manager at the Dolphin Shopping Centre, said: “We’re delighted to announce that planning permission has been granted for this exciting multiplex cinema. This latest investment will further shift the shopping centre towards a truly family-orientated offer and will help bring an element of trade that will extend into the evenings, creating a strong daytime and evening attraction for the south coast town.

“The cinema, at the heart of the shopping centre, will help generate more vibrancy and appeal for the town centre as a whole and will provide significant additional amenity for visitors to the Dolphin.”

Justin Ribbons, chief executive officer of Empire Cinemas, said: “We are delighted that planning permission has been granted. Empire Cinemas is thrilled to be returning to Poole as part of this fantastic new leisure facility at the Dolphin. With nine Screens including Empire Cinemas large format, IMPACT® Screen, D-Box and our open-air, rooftop screen there really will be ‘Something For Everyone’.”

The Dolphin covers 530,000 square footage with over 100 retail, restaurant and leisure brands and has an annual footfall of 11 million. The latest retailers to join the line-up include H&M, Deichmann, Smiggle and JD.
