Catford Mews Cinema

Located in the south-east London district of Catford, the aptly named Catford Mews has been designed by Really Local Group to have a strong focus on the local community, with the cinema screens part of a wider offer which also includes a café, bar and five local food vendors, plus a community room and a live music space.

The name pays tribute to the original Catford Mews, which housed a number of market stalls before being replaced by a Poundland discount store. Neither of these ventures gave any indication of the site’s true potential, with Poundland using only a tenth of the available space for the shop, with the rest reserved for storage.

So there was a lot of work to do. Outreach and consultation started in 2017, leading up to the beginning of construction in March 2019.

The rather modest entrance leads into a very large food court which, in turn, leads through to an equally large cinema foyer and bar/lounge. There is, indeed, a great deal of space for all the activities that it is hoped the venue will attract.

The three cinema screens opened officially on Wednesday 25th September 2019, but the opening films – period drama “Downton Abbey”, “Ad Astra”, starring Brad Pitt, Jessica Chastain and James McAvoy in “It: Chapter Two” and the documentary “For Sama” – were also shown the previous day.

Cinema seating capacities are: Screen 1:73, Screen 2:60 and Screen 3:60.
