Harveys cinema plans go to local authority

Hopes of a three-screen digital cinema in Lewes took a big step forward this week with submission of the planning application to the South Downs National Park Authority.

Lewes Community Screen is seeking to convert, adapt and extend the former Harveys Depot in Pinwell Road.

In addition to the cinema, the application also seeks film education/training facilities, a multi-use room for training/community use and an ancillary cafe bar and restaurant.
