R Durtnell & Sons Ltd have been on site for about a month now having successfully secured the tender for the West Norwood Cinema and Library project, due to open September 2017. This project will see us build a new four screen picturehouse cinema with main kiosk and ground floor café bar, public toilets and back of house operational area. The new build will also provide a soft finished library shell ready for final shelving, joinery and fit out by others.
The West Norwood Cinema will be our third cinema having already completed the Rye Kino Cinema in December 2014 (£1.4m) and currently working The Depot, Lewes (£5.6m) to provide them with a new cinema 1300m2 gross internal floor area housing four screens, office, staff room and kitchen. There will also be a foyer, café-bar, restaurant and education facilities located within a contemporary annex.
