This artist’s impression reveals how an independent cinema will look inside the £350m Trinity Leeds development.

Everyman Cinemas will open its first site in the North when the shopping centre opens in spring next year.

The complex will house four cinema screens and around 380 seats. At other Everyman cinemas in the South East, facilities includes premium couches, waiter service and lounge areas.

The huge glazed roof that covers the 1,000,000 sq ft shopping centre is currently under construction.

Trinity Leeds is the largest shopping and leisure destination currently being built in the UK and it is hoped the scheme will transform the area around Briggate, Commercial Street and Albion Street.

Andrew Myers, chief executive of Everyman Media Group, said: “We are delighted to have found the ideal venue for our first venture in the North of England.

“Trinity Leeds provides us with a superb setting in the heart of the UK’s third largest city.

“The City of Leeds and the wider community is ideal.”

Speaking in 2009, leasing director at Land Securities, John Grimes, said: “Everyman is an innovative, independent cinema operator that creates an individualistic viewing experience combining a mix of film, events and live entertainment where customers can relax in sumptuous surroundings.

“This is a real coup for the city.”

The boutique cinema will sit alongside leading fashion retailers including Marks & Spencer, Mango, Hollister, H&M, Primark, River Island and Topshop and Topman.

A restaurant area will include two bespoke Conran-designed restaurants – the first UK venture outside the capital for international restaurant operator D&D London.

The restaurants will take up 12,000 sq ft of the new roof-top building and will overlook the adjacent Grade 1 listed Holy Trinity Church.

Other restaurants will include Yo! Sushi, Carluccio’s, Handmade Burger and Giraffe.
