Tiger Woods and Justin Timberlake get green light to turn cinema into sports bar

The pair already own a bar in New York under the T-Squared Social name.

Tiger Woods and Justin Timberlake have been granted planning permission to turn a historic cinema in St Andrews into a sports bar and restaurant.

The US golf legend and singer lodged an application to transform the New Picture House near the Old Course into an eatery.

Fife Council on Monday gave the project, which comes under T-Squared Social name, the green light.

One screen of the 94-year-old cinema will be maintained under the plans, while the rest of the venue will be transformed through an investment said to be worth £2m to the town.

A multi-functional space under the new plans will include a range of sports simulators including golf, rugby, lacrosse and football.

A community response saw more than 12,300 signatures added to an online petition objecting to the development.

New Picture House and T- Squared Social then jointly revealed a new video, images and a website to give the community the opportunity to view the “new, enhanced proposals.”

The application was approved on the condition the development must commence no later than three years from the date permission was approved.
