Plans for a new cinema in King's Lynn have moved a step closer.
West Norfolk council's cabinet has backed plans to put two screens in a little-used bar and foyer in the Corn Exchange.
Officials say it would create a 112 and 60-seater screen, which would cost £1m to install but bring in an annual profit of £200,000. A lift would also be installed to provide disabled access.
The town's much-loved Majestic Cinema was consulted on the project and has no objections.
Paul Jervis, who owns the Majestic said: 'I truly believe that it is a positive step for the building and the town. I am also confident that rather than damage our business it will attract more people into the town centre and enhance the offering the town centre has.'
