Unfavorite No one has favorited this theater yet

Project and cost managed by W. Hiles Partnership, on behalf of Picturehouse Cinemas, this scheme, a joint venture between Picturehouse Cinemas and Lambeth Council, saw the transformation of an award-winning 1969 West Norwood Library into a four screen cinema and reborn library/community space, complete with bar and cafe.

The plans were originally submitted in August 2015, with work to have been completed by November 2017. Aside from any construction delays, a thorny issue has been the London Living Wage, which Lambeth Council proudly pays, but which Picturehouse Cinemas has been in dispute with its staff about, principally at the Ritzy Picturehouse in nearby Brixton.

Happily, the cinema finally opened on Friday 9th November 2018, with these films spread over the four screens: “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Widows”, “A Star Is Born”, “Peterloo”, “The Hate U Give”, “Wildlife”, “They Shall Not Grow Old” and “The Wife”.
