VICTORIA Point is set to get nine low-cost cinemas as part of an expansion plan by Southbank 5 Cineplex owner Leo Catalano.

Mr Catalano, who owns the Hawthorne and Balmoral cinemas, has bought a site within Wilcarn's Victoria Point Lakeside development.

The cinemas will be close to a restaurant precinct which is under construction and a council library which is due to open in March.
