Yate cinema dream becomes reality

A 15 year campaign has come to fruition with the opening of Yate's very own multiplex cinema.

Councillors and Liberal Democrat Focus Team members, led by former MP Steve Webb, campaigned for over 15 years to bring a cinema to the town. Last Thursday it was officially opened by the Mayor of Yate, Cllr Tony Davis (pictured on the right here celebrating with other members of the Focus Team who campaigned for the cinema).

The developers say that we wouldn't have got the cinema if it wasn't for the massive support from local people and Yate Town Council. This shows what a community can achieve if it's determined enough for long enough. A big thank you to everyone who supported our campaign.
