Phoenix Rising! Leicester Cinema & Art Centre Reveals Expansion Designs
Leicester Cultural Quarter’s arthouse cinema, Phoenix, is to add a further two screens along with a new art gallery, an expanded café bar and a green roof terrace in a £7 million development.
The extension will feature a first floor ‘green’ roof terrace and event space
providing a stunning outdoor space for dining, cinema and art events. Downstairs two new 70-seater cinema screens will complement Phoenix’s existing 220 and 120-seater auditoria.
A new digital art gallery, double the size of the current space, will offer a richer and more ambitious art programme whilst the current Café Bar will be extended to provide almost double the existing seating capacity, with new dining areas and a choice of seating.
Work is expected to complete in 2020.
