A Cineworld multiplex cinema with 11 screens will front the £250 million Southwater development in Telford, it has been announced today.

Telford & Wrekin Council and developer Citygrove said Cineworld was the preferred operator for the proposed cinema. It is believed 170 full and part-time jobs will be created.

Discussions are also at an advanced stage with a “well-known” hotel group and several high street restaurant chains as the development starts to take shape.

Competition is always good news. Maybe Odeon will lower their ticket prices...

Good News for Telford - this private sector investment announcement flies in the face of the doom amd gloom prediction that was put around by the previous administration at the Borough Elections - and there is more to come!!

Telford is not big enough for 2 multi-screen cinemas. My birthplace town is has twice the population and can only support 1 cinema so expect to see a slow death for the Odeon but at least that will give us more development land in the town centre for offices or pay and display car parks

Lets hope it's better than Cineworld Shrewsbury. We went to see Jane Eyre there and the film broke down just at the last bit where they fell into each other's arms. A responsible adult was finally found to restart the film. Before that we had to buy the tickets from some kid selling popcorn, so no chance to ask a couple of questions. The whole place seems to run on autopilot. I love cinema but if all I knew of it was Cineworld I wouldn't bother.
