Stratford in East London has seen a huge injection of cash to regenerate this formerly rundown area of East London. One of the first buildings to be built in 1997 was the award winning Picturehouse. The building is a a very striking modern Art Deco style complex with four stadium seated screens with THX sound and a huge lobby area with a huge bar and cafe.
The Picturehouse plays a mix of first run quality mainstream and arthouse films with regular documentary and foreign language slots.
Of course the area of Stratford has been highlighted due to the 2012 Olympic Games.
In early-2020 the cinema was redesigned to the plans of architectural firm Earle Architects.
