East Lothian Courier:
PLANS to construct an ‘igloo’ facility in Dunbar which would project films onto a 360-degree screen have moved a step forward – with a trial set to run in November.
The town’s Shore and Harbour Neighbourhood Group has been successful in a £10,000 grant application to Big Lottery Fund Investing in Ideas, which will pay for the installation of a temporary igloo for four days later this year.
The igloo will be installed on vacant ground on Lamer Street – the site of the former amusement arcade – where it is hoped a permanent facility could eventually be built, called Dunbar Coastlife Centre.
Pippa Swan, chair of the neighbourhood group, said: “We are absolutely thrilled with the grant offer from the National Lottery.
“Our preliminary discussions with the community council, our local councillors, Dunbar Trades’ Association and others have all been positive but a real life test is what is needed to understand whether or not a development of this sort on the amusement arcade [site] will be a good thing for Dunbar. The grant will let us do this.”
Igloovision will now bring a 12.5-metre cinemax igloo to Dunbar from November 22 to 25.
