Visible sign of reel progress in Trowbridge
The Odeon sign has gone up at the front of Trowbridge’s new cinema, which is due to open next month.
The cinema, which is part of the new £17million St Stephen’s Place development, has also hired its team of 33 staff, who come from Trowbridge and the surrounding area.
As well as having the seven-screen Odeon, the leisure complex will be home to six restaurants and an 80-bed Premier Inn.
Nick Price, general manager of the Odeon, said: “The sign is up and everything is going very well. We have completed our recruitment of staff. They are a lovely, bubbly, positive team and we are all looking forward to the opening and meeting the town.”
Mr price said he could not confirm an official opening date, but hopes to open in time for the school half-term holidays, which begin on October 26.
Trowbridge Town and Wiltshire Councillor John Knight is pleased to see jobs at the cinema going to local people. Cllr Knight, who represents Trowbridge Central, said: “This is brilliant news and it is great to see one of the new developments in Trowbridge coming forward.
“The site will be a big change for Trowbridge and the town will look very different in evenings and on weekends in the coming months.”
Cllr Knight said that he thought the new development would act as a catalyst for further regeneration of the town.
Nando’s and Prezzo have been confirmed as two of the eateries at St Stephen’s Place, with its developer Legal & General still to announce who will take the other restaurants. More details at www.trowbridgecinema.co.uk
