Cinema plans

Cinema designThe council has been working on  plans with City Screen , who run independent cinemas including Clapham Picture House, for a possible cinema in the Nettlefold Hall / Library Centre – beside the cemetery entrance.

Friends of West Norwood Library have arranged  to give local people  a chance to see and comment on the plans at an early stage.

Just drop in to The Old Library, 16 Knights Hill SE27 0HY on Saturday 20th October between 1pm and 4pm

The Nettlefold Hall / Library Centre has been closed after thieves stole the copper roof in June 2011. The latest plans are that   West Norwood Library goes  back into the Nettlefold and shares the space with a  4 screen cinema,  café and bar.

    Updates on cinema and library in West Norwood…. At the last Norwood Forum there was opposition on the grounds of the plan to have a bar in the cinema (like the Ritzy and the Clapham Picture House) and about parking. There was a really good presentation and the proposers had really done their homework. It looks like a brilliant scheme – the library will be revamped, with a courtyard and cafe in the middle, and the cinema complex will be adjoining. This is a real opportunity to make a difference to the area so I hope that you can come along to the meeting – which will be held at Elmgreen School, Elmcourt Road, SE27 9BZ, on Saturday 10th November from 12 noon until 1pm.

    Have these plans now been scrapped? I hope not!

    • Negotiations on the fine print of the legal arrangements are nearly completed. Details of the library-cinema plans for the site are expected to go to public consultation just after the summer – before any planning application is made.
