Redrock Cinema Complex Opens in Stockport

by jontwigge on 26 November, 2017

Stockport’s new Redrock cinema complex opened this week. The Light have opened a ten screen cinema. There are a range of restaurants either open already or coming soon include Zizzi, Pizza Express, Gourmet Burger Company and Loungers. A gym opens in January and the new car park – accessible directly from the A6 for the first time – is open for business too.

Redrock is a great addition to Stockport, putting the cinema and restaurants right in the heart of the town for the first time. A new public square connects them to Merseyway and through there to the Old Town. The Light is a different kind of cinema – plush, reclining seats are just part of the offer.

Redrock, which has all-party support at the Council, isn’t costing taxpayers any money. It’s an investment in the town which is expected to either break even or deliver a profit to council taxpayers. The old Cineworld cinema near the station will soon be demolished and replaced with Grade A offices, adding to the successful Stockport Exchange development.

“More people are coming into Stockport now.  There are new restaurants, Foodie Friday and the hotels are full; Stockport is changing. We are proud of what the Lib Dems have done to improve Stockport over the last few years. There is more to be done, but we’re making good progress.” said Cllr Jon Twigge

    Great news , But people are unwilling to pay for parking. Parking charges are killing Stockport
