Mildly amazed that they're even considering competition for the current cinema flea pit operators...?

The island has trouble filling the cinemas they have. What makes you think a seven screen cinema will fare well?

It isn't me who thinks so, it's the developers, according to the report. 

Most decent sized towns have multiplex cinemas, and running multiple screens in such a complex is pretty efficient with digital projection. If they make the development a destination in its own right, with bars and restaurants, it'll be a pleasant evening/afternoon out.

I think this is the key to everything here. On an island which is cold, wet and windy most of the year somewhere where you can spend a few hours undercover and warm with the variety of food, drink and entertainment it'd have to be a winner. If they tagged on some kind of Wacky Warehouse type facility so the parents could get a beer/coffee and the kids could entertain themselves it'd fill a much needed gap in the market.

And here's what Cineworld in Jersey has on during this month: https://film.list.co.uk/cinema/42906-cineworld-jersey/ 

That’s a great listing of films.  It would certainly get me in.  It’s quite possibly a comfortable clean venue too.  Not that the little Villa cinema here is too bad, but limited in choice of movies. One.

Is there still no bus station yet?

I lived on the Island from 2000 to 2012. 12 years of no bus station. Is there still no bus station in 2018 :-)
