The building is currently being converted into a restaurant and nightclub. The ground floor and the former cafe' are to be come restaurants accessed from the Guild Street entrance.The nightclub is being built in the circle area of the cinema,this will be accessed from a new entrance that will use the original Fa├žade at the rear of the building and use the stage area.

Any original plaster work that will be on show is to be repainted. The plans show some of the plaster work will be boxed in.I have included some photos of the ongoing work.

Scores of objections over plans to demolish most of a former cinema have been lodged.

Developer Square Peg Investments is behind the proposal to knock down the former Robins Cinema building in Guild Street, Burton.

But more than 15 letters opposing the plans have been sent to East Staffordshire Borough Council along with objections from the Cinema Theatre Association and The Theatres Trust.

The developer has applied to the authority for conservation area consent so it can knock down the cinema building, but keep the former 1867 opera house facade.

Square Peg Investments has also submitted a separate planning application to build a four-storey building, containing 30 apartments, on the site.

Planners have recommended that both applications are refused. A final decision will be made at a meeting on Monday.
