Plans for a new eight-screen multi-million pound cinema development for Co Armagh are currently being considered by the Department of the Environment Planning Service.
The application is for the former Irish Road Motors site at Highfield Heights in Craigavon.
The development, if approved, would also include four restaurant units and associated car parking and would bring a welcome employment boost to the area.
The application is in the name of Omniplex Holdings NI Ltd and has been submitted by its agent, HPA Architects.
Notification for neighbours, as is common practice, went out last Thursday and the planning authorities will be advertising the application next week to allow the public to have their say.
The site in question is a largely vacant former car showroom, and former charity shop and youth activity centre. It has now been cleared with all buildings having been completely demolished.
Omniplex is the largest cinema chain in the north, with other outlets including Market Street, Armagh, the Quays Shopping Centre in Newry and at Lisburn.
