I don't go to the Watermans unless there is a really good film on that I missed when it was on general release because it is dark, dingy and depressing.  

A nice, cheerful place with a great bar and atmosphere would be a totally different proposition.   I find Riverside Studios a bit depressing too but at least in the summer you can sit out on the lovely terrace and the bar and restaurant area are not bad - not to mention a wide variety of good entertainment.

Having said that, if I had to choose I would prefer a cinema but surely there is enough space and would be enough clientele for both a cinema and a really good, attractive Arts Centre, ideally with some outside space for al fresco drinking/eating in the summer? 

People want to go to attractive spaces, not gloomy, depressing ones that make your heart sink as soon as you approach.  The Watermans is in a lovely location right by the river - totally wasted because of the architecture, I feel claustrophobic with the low ceilings and gloom and can't wait to get out.
