THE Dunfermline Cinema Project (DCP) is set to submit its application to turn an unnamed town centre building into its new home.

A meeting will be held later this week with a view to filing their plans with Fife Council as soon as possible.

The project’s Graeme Spence told the Press that their team met on Sunday to work on their planning submission.

He said: “We’re currently working on drawings, structural stuff for seating and noise assessment for planning.”

The community group has also been gifted around 100 seats for their planned venue from the Alhambra Theatre.

A spokesperson for the Alhambra Theatre Trust said they were “delighted” to help the project.

They said: “The Dunfermline Cinema Project is a very important community project, which we at the Alhambra are delighted to support.

“We would like to wish the project the very best of luck for the future.

"The Alhambra Trust are thrilled to see the previous seats enjoying an ‘after-life’ after having been used by over one million people during 12 years in the theatre, and still in great condition.”

Of the donation, Graeme added: “The Alhambra are installing new seats at the theatre and they’ve kindly given us around 100 seats or so for us to use.

“The seats are still in good condition and I believe they were previously used at another cinema before the Alhambra, so they’ve got some history behind them.”

The DCP started its journey in the wake of the Press Take Action campaign which is calling for the Odeon to reduce ticket prices after we discovered it's the dearest cinema in Scotland, and donations can be made by bank transfer and cheque.
