Fresh plans for a cinema at The Regent have been put forward by Mark Digweed and James Wallace, the duo who bought the freehold of the Beach Street premises in 2011. In their application to Dover District Council, they outlined plans for a two-screen cinema seating 200 and an adjoining restaurant.
Mr Wallace said: “We think this is the most viable scheme. It gives everybody what they want.
“It retains the existing building without too many alterations, creating something for the community which was always our goal from the offset.
“What we want to do is celebrate the building, a building which has stood the test of time.”
A Dover District Council spokesman said: "I can confirm we have received an application for the Regent. This has to be validated by the planning team before it is made public on our website and published on the weekly planning list."
A ROTR spokesman said: “We are delighted to learn that, after almost nine years, plans for the Regent Cinema have at last been submitted, and we look forward to seeing them.
"We trust that they will be practical, actioned swiftly, and that the people of Deal and its villages will soon have the cinema they have long been promised, and for which they have long campaigned.
"We are ever hopeful, but won’t start celebrations until we see the work begin on site."
