A new four-screen cinema is planned to open at Chantry Place shopping centre in Norwich.

Everyman Cinemas is hoping to move into three units at the centre including the former Cafe Rouge and Pizza Hut restaurants. 

The occupant of the third unit is unconfirmed but will be vacating in early 2024. 

Everyman is a chain of boutique cinemas with screens across the country in London, Manchester and Liverpool.

The company was founded in 2000 and hosts a range of special events, screening classic and independent films. 

The application was received by Norwich City Council on August 29 setting out the intention to change the units from retail and restaurant use to the new theatre. 

This would be the fourth cinema in the city alongside ODEON at Riverside, Vue in Castle Quarter and Cinema City in St Andrew's Street. 

Other alterations detailed in the application include modifications to the entrance of the building and to existing customer toilets.

Chantry Place did not confirm or deny the rumours but a representative said: "The centre continues to perform strongly with Frasers reopening as planned and Urban Outfitters joining our line-up earlier this year.

"Next year we’ll have more big brands joining us, one of which will really put Norwich on the retail map, and we continue to explore a number of potential lettings to further enhance our offering in retail, catering and leisure.

"The future is really exciting for us as we work to surpass the aspirations of our visitors and provide them with even more reasons to visit, and we’ll announce more details on next year and future plans as and when we can.”

Everyman Cinemas has been approached for comment.
