One of the most urgent needs expressed by residents of Kirkham is for some form of leisure attraction, in particular a cinema on the high street.

At one time there were two cinemas in Kirkham, now there are none.

Initially there was a proposal to set up an Arts and Heritage Centre & Community Cinema, which has further developed into a proposal for a Restaurant and Community Cinema to create a sustainable future on the high street in one of Kirkham's most historic buildings.

52-64 Poulton Street is a Grade II Listed former Girls school built in 1860. It became a community hall in 1896 and latterly the TSB bank.

This prime high street property is very well located for a Restaurant and Community Cinema.

The building has been vacant for a number of years, but has been part-restored already including Façade cleaning and internal alterations.
