THE final touches are now being made to the town centre's huge new Cineworld complex, before it opens in summer.

The 2,000-seater venue’s core structural work and external cladding was completed last year, but work has started on the venue’s 13-screen interior.

Barnsley Council leader Sir Steve Houghton said: “This is a very exciting time and we’re looking to the future with great confidence.

“Since the Glass Works began its phased opening in September, there’s been a hugely positive atmosphere and we’ve seen many people returning to the town centre for shopping and leisure.”
