On 9th April 2018 Third Force News reported that this cinema is set to be restored to its former glory after a mammoth fundraising effort from the local community.

The Fraser Centre Community Trust project looked like it was facing crisis point in February when it realised it had to raise £400,000 by the end of March. However, through a combination of design savings and additional fundraising, including a passionate response from the local community, the group has now said it has achieved its £2.9 million target and the project will go ahead.

The trust’s intention is to transform the former picture house into a hub for learning, development, arts and entertainment in the heart of the town.

Building contracts have been signed and the project is expected to commence in the next few weeks. The trust will continue to fund raise for the purchase of cinema equipment, raked seating and decorative features which have been removed during the cost saving exercise.
