Plans are being drawn up for new uses for the giant screen at Millennium Point after bosses announced it was to close following years of loss-making.

A 30-day consultation has begun with 11 members of staff amid plans to close the Giant Screen Cinema at the Eastside venue.

Millennium Point chief executive Philip Singleton said it had been eating into profits for the past six years and never came “anywhere near to breakeven”.

He is currently working with architects, business advisers and caterers to look into long-term plans to use the screen for events.
