Work on a new two-screen cinema in King's Lynn Corn Exchange could begin soon after the plans were recommended for approval.
Plans submitted for the listed building include the instalation of 58 and 52-seater screens, along with a new lift, staircase, foyer and digital display screens to advertise.
A West Norfolk Council planning committee meeting agenda for July 29, advised that proposals for both the cinema and supporting facilities were approved.
The proposals were originally expected to cost £1m, but last month it emerged the cost had increased to £1.6m because of alterations needed to the historic building's roof.
Plans were set to be approved at a council meeting on July 4, however the press and public were excluded from the debate, because it was possible that exempt information might be disclosed during the discussion.
