By Sam Lennon

Dover's first ever multiplex cinema opens this week.

The six-screen Cineworld will open on Friday and will be the first business welcoming customers to the £53 million St James's retail and leisure development.

The cinema was meant to open on February 2 but hitches in getting electricity connections led to the the delay.

Dover so far has only one small cinema, the 77-seater Silver Screen off Market Square, which opened in 1991.

The town had no cinema at all by the late 1980s after so many had closed nationwide because of crushing competition from television.

Cineworld in Dover has a total 909 sets and the biggest screen room has 237.
