FILM fans have taken to social media to have their say on plans to build a new cinema at the Gyle Shopping Centre.
As exclusively revealed by the Edinburgh Evening News, the centre will undergo a £25 million revamp to include a new cinema and additional space for shops.
Readers took to Facebook to debate the proposed changes to the 25-year-old shopping centre.
Lukasz Bieda said: “The next door Waster Hailes just had one. Why so many cinemas?
“Why not a proper swimming centre/aqua park for kids? It’s shame that the capital city has none?”
John Blair added: “Gyle shopping centre has been run down for few years now...not the centre it once was.
“Very old fashioned. Better to nip out to Livingston.”
Vicki Colvin said: “Another cinema. Edinburgh needs decent concert venue - that would be nice.”
Liane Newton added: “Hopefully they get some shops that aren’t travel agents, phone shops or jewellers!”
Patrick Hogg said: “They needed to do something because it’s a dump!”
Michelle Barker said: “More money wasted why not put that to NHS or build new houses?”
