In October 2016, The Light Cinema opened its 9-screen, 1,200-seat cinema within the renovated Market Place Shopping Centre in Bolton. The 30,000 sq ft cinema was built on the existing roof-top car park. Burrows Little was also involved in the preliminary feasibility discussions between The Light and Bolton Council and assessed a number of sites in Bolton prior to the selection of Market Place. Prior to opening, Bolton did not have a town centre cinema and this project was a council priority.
The £15m revamp of the 400,000 sq ft shopping centre started on site at the start of 2015. Moorgarth, the UK arm of Inception Holdings SARL, was the developer/investor for the site and also developed 30,000 sq ft of restaurant space.
