THE decision on whether to allow a sex shop and cinema to have a licence will be taken by Kirklees Council next week.
The Empire Cinema, in John William Street, has shown adult films for more than 25 years and has been selling books, magazines and sex aids for three years.
But in May when the licence was up for renewal the vicar of Huddersfield, the Rev Catherine Ogle, spoke out against the cinema saying it had a `seedy atmosphere'.
Empire owner Steven Fawthrop said he could not understand what all the fuss was about.
He said: "We have been here as a cinema for more than 25 years and never had any bother until now.
"We keep ourselves to ourselves and anyone who does not want anything to do with us just stays away.
"With the exception of the videos our shop does not sell anything more explicit than Ann Summers in the town centre."
In May councillors on Kirklees Council's Licensing and Safety Committee deferred a decision to let Mr Fawthrop have his say.
Councillors will meet again at the Town Hall on Monday, August 2, at 9am.
