Aberdeen's historic Capitol Theatre is set for a £30m redevelopment into offices.

Knight Property Group has unveiled plans for the Union Street building, which dates back to 1933.

The developer is consulting with Aberdeen City Council and Historic Scotland over its art deco features.

Director James Barrack said: "This will see one of Aberdeen's most historic and iconic buildings restored to its former glory."

He added: "We will be commencing works on site immediately, once we have received consent, and it is anticipated that the Capitol will be completed by the end of 2014."
