ROYAL RUBBLE: Gibraltar’s ageing Queen’s Cinema building set to be demolished

THE ageing Queen’s Cinema building will be demolished and turned into parking spaces. 

It comes after it was announced at a recent planning meeting that the iconic site will finally be given a purpose following its closing in 2014. 

The Government had debated about what to do with the 1960s structure after it had bought it from the Bentata family. 

It had wanted to create a theatre but it was curtain call on such plans after news that the John Mackintosh Hall is set to receive a new 900 seat playhouse of its own.

The parking spaces are believed to be temporary. 

Numerous calls for open spaces have led to six possible construction sites being temporarily put on ice.
