A planning application for an extension, to include an IMAX, new foyer, and another additional auditorium (where the current foyer is located) was approved on 28th February 2020.

Of particular interest, looking at the plans and cross-section, this appears to be another case of a Cineworld IMAX designed to have a 1.43:1 (or taller!) aspect ratio screen, with a drop in level ahead of the front row.

Measuring off the planning drawings, the screen size is ~21.5x17.5m. The height in particular is subject to inaccuracy due to the cross-section being a quasi-3D rendering with a rectangular shaped image clearly pasted on; but it’s clearly not a 1.9:1 screen.

Given the current SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, one might wonder if Cineworld will proceed with this scheme.
