New cinema and restaurants planned for intu Merry Hill

A leisure extension, containing a cinema and new restaurants, is set to be built at the Merry Hill centre.

The centre's owner, Intu, has bought the building which currently houses the Odeon cinema opposite the retail hub and is now in talks with the chain to move it to a new location.

Artists impressions show a new building alongside the existing Eat Central food court, with a series of new restaurants tabled to open alongside the venture.

A planning application for the new leisure complex is due to be lodged with Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council later this year.

This the latest phase of an ongoing programme of expansion and renovation works at the centre worth around £110 million after Intu acquired the whole of Merry Hill last year.

Recent announcements regarding Merry Hill include fashion retailer Next taking over the former Sainsbury's supermarket unit, a new shop by luxury watch brand Tag Heuer and a facelift for the bus station which adjoins the centre.
