Approximatley 400m2 of Optima TFC was selected for the refurbishment of the Vue Cinema in Walton-le-Dale, Preston. Finished in PPC (in various Axalta colours), the modernisation of the building consists of a large new façade, constructed in black metal rainscreen cladding, projecting 3.8m from the main front elevation (width 16.8m, height of 12m). The extension forms a new entrance to the cinema.
