Plymouth's Reel Cinema set to be knocked down for student flats

Plymouth's famous 1930s Reel Cinema could be knocked down to make way for more student flats.

Plans have been unveiled to replace the building, which once hosted a gig by The Beatles, with a hotel, commercial units and student accommodation.

A map sent with invites highlights the entire block, including Lorenzo's Spanish Restaurant and Tapas Bar and the Gala Bingo hall.

The invite said it wanted to hear the public's views at a pre-planning application consultation on October 17, 2016, at the Pennon Room, Theatre Royal Plymouth, between 11am and 7pm.

It explained the proposal as: "Demolition of a existing cinema, and the erection of a mixed-use development, comprising of hotel, commercial unit(s) and student accommodation at a site of 25 Derry's Cross, Plymouth."

It added: "You are invited to attend a public exhibition to find out more about the proposals and give us your comments before the planning application is submitted.

Give it to Brent for a quid. It will be safe for another 100 years then.

I'm sure that Whitleigh, Southway, Plympton, Plymstock and St Budeaux are all struggling to squeeze a single extra student flat in anywhere.

The University is now one of Plymouth's biggest employers (and might even be the biggest) and the students have to live somewhere... Isn't them living in student flats better than spreading out all over the city taking away "proper" housing from others as they do?

Or would you prefer that they, educated feckin wankers the lot of them, all just fecked off and took the hundreds, or maybe thousands, of jobs they support with them?

We have precious little in the city that puts us on the national map. Argyle is one of them that does it on a regular basis and the Navy/dockyard is another but the University is right up there at doing so and it brings so much in so many different ways to the city that just as we are rightfully proud of our naval and maritime heritage and support our football team so too should we be celebrating what the University does for Plymouth rather than sneering at it.

I'll be sad to see Lorenzo's go though. It has to be one of the best places to go out for a meal that Plymouth has to offer.
