Our Vision

Our vision is to create a community cinema, theatre, arts and entertainment centre, at the top end of Fore Street in Bovey Tracey. The King of Prussia Arts Centre will give a new lease of life to this historic building, offering a 118-seat cinema theatre (Cinema Paradiso), art gallery and artists studios, and a high-quality cafe bar restaurant (Cafe Paradiso).

We will work with the Dartmoor Whisky Distillery and The Bell, to create a new community leisure and cultural hub for the community rejuvenating the top end of Fore Street.

This is a community project owned by 322 shareholders and with support of donors, more than 500 people are stakeholders in this project.

Huge thanks go to our Founder Members, shareholders and those that have donated over £100.
