More details unveiled for Paisley theatre and cinema complex

Baker Street Paisley gardensInitial designs for a cultural and creative quarter in Paisley have been unveiled by Glasgow architects Stallan-Brand.

Developed in conjunction with Paisley Community Trust (PCT), the £24.7 million proposals include a three to five screen cinema, 500 seat main theatre, 150 seat studio theatre, rehearsal rooms and offices as well as a bar and restaurant and outdoor area and gardens.

Named Baker Street Paisley in reference to the classic 1970s hit by the late Gerry Rafferty, the facility would be built on the site behind Arnotts on Gauze Street.

PCT now hopes to raise funding for the project.

If the successful, the complex would be due for completion in 2021.

While not forming a direct part of Paisley’s 2021 City of Culture bid, if the bid is successful it is hoped the venue will play an important part in the year.
