Arthouse cinema chain Curzon has submitted a planning application for Roman House in Colchester.
The boutique outlet has been linked to the site in Queen Street, which was part of the former Keddies store, since 2013.
Now it has put forward formal plans to Colchester Borough Council for approval.
A restaurant and bar will make up the ground floor of the site, while three screens will be located on the upper storeys.
It will employ 25 full-time and 30 part-time staff.
