A New Luxury Cinema Complex Is Set To Open In Doncaster Really, Really Soon

Doncaster has seen huge developments in recent years, with improvements made across the town in areas such as Lakeside and Sir Nigel Gresley Square – and its set for even more developments in the coming months. At. Long. Last.

The plans for the upcoming Savoy complex were confirmed back in 2018, with construction beginning on its new Waterdale home early 2019.

The council backed project will see a six-screen Savoy cinema which will show the latest releases and rival the existing Vue at the town’s Lakeside complex. The Vue cinema is currently the town centre’s only cinema following the closure of the ODEON back in 2008.

The complex will also create space for five new restaurants – a much needed development for the South Yorkshire town. The council has said that ‘big name’ restaurants have shown ‘strong interest’ in the space, which will come as exciting news for residents looking for something new in town.

Speaking of the project, Mayor of Doncaster Ros Jones has said:

“The new Savoy cinema and restaurant complex is well on its way to completion which is tremendous news for Doncaster.

“The new cinema is part of our fast expanding Civic and Cultural Quarter.

“We have already overseen the creation of Cast performance venue, the Civic Office, Sir Nigel Gresley Square and superb new homes. And with work going well on Danum Gallery, Library and Museum and Doncaster University Technical College, the Waterdale area is coming alive.”

Construction is well underway and due for completion, with an expected opening of Spring 2020 which is expected to create 100 jobs for local residents.
