    Completed in 1931, the Grade II Listed former cinema has been vacant for more than a decade, and is now set to be brought back to life as part of plans by Regeneration Liverpool and Developers Neptune.

    The Cinema is set to undergo a 9m overhaul as part of the major regeneration plans for Liverpool's Lime Street. The former cinema will be converted into a state-of-the-art entertainment venue capable of holding crowds of up to 1,500 people for live performances in it's famous auditorium.

    No planning application for the multi-million pound scheme has been submitted to Liverpool Council yet, but documents obtain offer insight into the proposals. It will host audiences of between 600 to 1,500 with bosses behind the project aiming to attract international music, cabaret and comedy artists. The auditorium will remain its upper circle of seating, while the ground floor's use will be able to cater for standing or seated crowds. A sound stage will offer equipment for live transmission and live recordings, whilst the ABC will also host a cocktail bar and restaurant. As well as the entertainment facilities, a TV studio will overlook the auditorium but also have an enlarged window framing a stunning view towards Lime Street Station and St George's Hall. The recording capabilities of the ABC, and the TV studio, will offer the possibility for the building to host live TV shows, with Neptune saying interest has already been expressed in the concept.
