CREWE'S long-awaited multi-screen cinema will open in November with the screening of the latest Harry Potter blockbuster.
Cinema bosses are hoping the boy wizard will help draw in the crowds to the launch weekend. They plan to unveil the Curzon cinema to coincide with the release of the forthcoming Harry Potter film, Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire, on November 11.
A Curzon Cinemas spokesman said: 'We want to open the cinema on the new Phoenix Leisure Park with the release of Harry Potter. Everything is going to plan.'
The cinema will be the last unit to open with developers and businesses confident the venture will be ready on time.
It is expected tenants will move into their new units in July and work has already started to improve access to the site in Dunwoody Way.
A Cheshire County Council spokeswoman said: 'The developers are creating road access to the new leisure centre. They started work on Monday, May 16, for an eight-week scheme.
'The first four weeks will see 24-hour temporary traffic lights as one lane will need to be closed. In the second four weeks there will be off-peak traffic lights from 9.30am-3.30pm Monday-Saturday. There will be no traffic lights on Sunday during this period.'
Emyr Williams, development director for developer Liberties Properties which is investing £7m into the scheme, said: 'The buildings are nearly ready and everything's on track.'
The Mayor of Crewe and Borough Council, Maureen Grant said: 'The opening of the Phoenix Leisure Park will prove to be a huge boost for Crewe.'
