There are a lot of cold feet in the cinema market at present due to lack of new blockbusters and Disney streaming Mulan on Disney+ (even though it failed miserably for the extra charges compared to box office takings). Cinema's a very heavy and expensive to build, so provided they have engineered the cinema box now, it shouldn't be too hard to fill in later.Breaking---> Valley Metro Changes
Thought that would be the case after checking the place out a week ago. I couldn't find any indication of cinemas being built nor the second level from the original plans.
Woolies and other retail will be opening in March 2021.
It makes sense re cinemas not going ahead. It's a cut throat declining business at the moment. People tend to prefer streaming services over Cinemas. The supermarket, discount department store, bar, cafe sectors and casual dining will continue to grow despite the Covid setbacks
I wonder if there is an option for a second level in the future? Or will they let that slide?
I'm 50/50 on this one. Since cinema shrunk to the same size as affordable hi-definition TVs its kind of moot how many want to come back. I do, but I don't want bigger than 55" in my living room. I'm told a shedload of people tooled up to 75" and are not coming back. They own la-zee-boys and have a popcorn machine at home.^^ Before covid though the cinema industry was booming, i think the nostalgia of movies will continue on as people are social creatures that like to get out of the house.
I think I'll probably take no 2
