New Eco Cinema in Northwest London

KENSAL RISE, LONDON, ENGLAND — Self-made millionaire Sally Wilton is to launch an 80 seat all digital cinema in Northwest London next month called the Lexi Cinema.

This sounds like a treat for neighborhood residents!

“It is not one of those awful multiplex affairs – it is a real, local cinema and one which we hope will make going to see a film a magical occasion.” The 80-seat venue will show a mix of art-house, retrospective and mainstream movies, while its bar will serve fairtrade wine and organic ice cream.

More from the Evening Standard of September 1st.

And from the Pinkham Lighthouse website.

Kensal Rise is an district in the North-West of London. There were once two cinemas on Chamberlyne Road, the Odeon which closed in 1970 and was demolished for a petrol station to be built and the Palace(ABC) closed in 1974 and later demolished for housing.

Both have their own pages here on Cinema Treasures:

I wish the new Lexi Cinema every success when it opens.

How many square feet is the new theatre? I’m looking at opening a similar type theater idea in my town and I’m trying to discern how much space I’ll need. This is a great idea!
