'PERFECT View', 'Broadstreet Boxoffice' and 'Broad Screen' are among the names people are suggesting as a name for Reading's new cinema.

Following news of a new big-screen opening in Broad Street Mall in 'late summer', and that a prize award would be available for the best name, suggestions have flooded in to the comments section on The Chronicle's Facebook.

Not everyone was pleased with the news though.

One commented: "Utterly shameful to put a cinema in the town centre.

"I'm disgusted. Should have been a bowling alley, ice rink or a laser quest", while another said: "I don't like going to the cinema, it's too pricey and the volume is always too high."

A deal has been signed to transform a 14,000 sq ft space in the town's Broad Street Mall into a cinema, music and events centre.

Really Local Group, a developer focused on creating and restoring cultural infrastructure by ‘putting the heart back into the high street’, and Moorgarth, owners of Broad Street Mall, will deliver on a long-held ambition to re-imagine the centre later this year.

Reading Chronicle:

Many are looking forward to seeing another cinema in the town centre, with one resident saying "Wow, looks cool".

Those with a perfect naming idea which pays tribute to Reading are asked to tweet the developers at @reallylocalgrp with suggestions by February 18.

The winner will be awarded an annual membership, complete with free cinema tickets and further discounted cinema tickets, food and drink, as well as an invite to the exclusive venue launch party this summer (plus 10 friends).
