A Preston cinema which was due to move into the city centre is now to be revamped.


Vue at the Capitol Centre has seen plans tabled for a new look entrance and makeover inside.

The cinema, built in 1991, has now seen any work since then.

It was due to anchor a new £40m redevelopment of the Fishergate Shopping Centre, but this fell through when Preston City Council’s planning officers indicated the scheme would be rejected.

Plans for Vue, submitted to South Ribble Borough Council, show a new entrance way with a large orange and black cladding sign.


Vue was due to be demolished, along with Frankie and Benny’s, as part of the move to the Fishergate centre.
