Plans were approved by the Borough Council of West Norfolk to build two cinema screens in the Grade II listed Corn Exchange in King’s Lynn. The Corn Exchange, in Tuesday Market Place, was built in 1854 and remodelled in 1996 to provide a concert hall and community space. King’s Lynn councillor Elizabeth Nockolds said: “The full council wants to help King’s Lynn town centre to remain vibrant and for people to come to King’s Lynn from the surrounding areas.
“People are buying more stuff online and by having another cinema it gives another reason for people to come into the town centre which creates an atmosphere where people can relax.
“We have a number of good restaurants in the market place which we hope people can come and enjoy.
“It is a great use of the first floor as it is often used only three times a year.”
