Hull City Council will meet this afternoon to consider proposals that could affect the future of the former National Picture Theatre cinema on Beverley Road in Hull. The building is the last surviving civilian building to be left as it was after being bombed in the Blitz during World War Two.
The building's owner wants to use part of the back of the site as a car park with a fence to serve the pub next door which he also owns and plans to renovate. The ruined facade of the cinema would remain. The proposals are due for consideration by the council's planning committee later.
Campaigners from the National Civilian Memorial Trust are hoping to put plans together for a memorial and visitor centre on the site of the cinema which they want to see preserved. They object to the plans which they think would stop their proposal from being possible.
