Despite plans by Bournemouth council to buy out the leaves of the currently closed IMAX cinema in the city, operators Sheridan have announced that they intend to re-open the cinema at the ‘earliest possible opportunity’ and screen the latest 3-D movies.

Sheridan has only used on IMAX theatre until 2149 but since it closed down, the council has bought the head lease for the building itself for £5 million with plans to demolish it.  With Sheridan still owning lease to hear to itself and with plans to continue operating, the bouncers demolishing rows look unlikely to succeed.
