Plans for a new cinema look set to get the go-ahead.
West Norfolk council wants to convert under-used space in King's Lynn Corn Exchange into 58 and 52-seater screens.
The proposals, which include state of the art sound and projection, were originally expected to cost £1m, which would be repaid from the £200,000 a year income projected for the attraction.
But last month, the council's ruling cabinet heard the cost had increased to £1.6m because of alterations which would be needed to the historic building's roof.
While some councillors expressed reservations about the cost increase, the cabinet agreed to go ahead with the project.
