THIS week in Weston there’s a lot of talk about the big screen, as Odeon pledges to revamp its town centre site and Dolphin Square’s developer promises Cineworld will remain part of the development.

Here’s what you had to say on Odeon’s latest announcement:

“Knew they would have to do this, has been in desperate need of a refurb for years.

“If Vue or Cineworld had opened on time they’d have been hit hard. Improvements should see less people go to Cribbs or Cabot Circus. Good stuff Odeon.” - Craig Parker.

“Think that will be the end for Cineworld and possibly Dolphin Square redevelopment.” - Steven Morris.

And here are your thoughts on Cineworld’s promise:

“Our existing cinema is having a revamp. Why would we need two?” - Sarah Tovey.

“We’ve got a cinema, when is the bowling alley going to be built?” - Caroline Sheppard.

“I think they should pull their finger out and get on with it, Weston’s going down the pan.

“It’s about time we had some more shops, at the moment every vacant space seems to turn into a coffee shop.” - Abbie Sanderson.

“Why another cinema? There’s a 4D screen on the pier.” - Lynn Burnell.

“Just build it already - we’re fed up at looking at a big pile of rubble.” - Steve Lakey.

“Just like Weston. Full of wind and bluster but nothing will change.” - Graham Jennings.

“But where will they keep the unicorns, the candy trees and the free gold dispensers?

“If the developers promised them I’d think it as believable as this promise.” - Bob Powell.
