BLACKWOOD Town Council have for many years tried to secure a cinema for the residents of Blackwood and the surrounding areas, as this has always been one of the main topics of conversation when speaking to local people.

Therefore it gives us immense satisfaction as a town council that Picturedrome who have liaised with the town council via Mr Steve Reynolds, the owner of Four Seasons Entertainment have chosen Blackwood to open their latest multiplex Cinema. The new cinema, will hopefully have at least four screens and is expected to be open by next spring or early next summer which will no doubt become an added attraction for the people who visit Blackwood.

On a personal note I hope that the new cinema will generate a huge amount of interest and become a roaring success and therefore encourage more businesses to open on the High Street and encourage more people to come to Blackwood.
