Cineworld scores with revamped Wembley deal

CINEWORLD is to open a cinema next to Wembley arena, it was announced yesterday.

The UK’s only quoted cinema chain has signed an agreement with Quintain, which owns Wembley City, to open a 1,800 capacity cinema.

Cineworld has signed a 25-year lease of the nine-screen cinema, next to the stadium and Wembley Arena, which is due to open in 2013.

Nick Shattock, deputy chief executive of Quintain, said: “This agreement with Cineworld is another significant step forward in delivering our core retail and leisure offer at Wembley City.” Quintain is behind a major regeneration of the area including a 280,000 square foot retail and leisure hub.
