Outdoor arena plan submitted for IMAX site
Bournemouth Council has submitted a planning application for a new outdoor events arena to replace the IMAX building.
The events arena is planned to host a range of events from the arts to extreme sports. There could also be a range of seasonal offers including speciality markets and big screen coverage of sporting and national events.
The Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and Pavilion Dance have both already expressed an interest in staging performances and other potential events could include theatre performances, music and dance, sports and community events. Leader of the council John Beesley, said: “We know that local people will be glad to see the back of the IMAX building, but it is what could be in its place that is really exciting.”
