Ealing Filmworks

Welcome to our website

This website sets out Land Securities’ vision for the comprehensive redevelopment of land between New Broadway, Mattock Lane and Bond Street which includes the long-empty cinema site on New Broadway. 

Land Securities innovative plans will deliver a high-quality leisure quarter in the town centre, anchored by a multi-screen Picturehouse cinema.  This forward-thinking regeneration scheme meets the London Borough of Ealing’s policy commitment to create a new, well integrated leisure quarter

Ealing Filmworks

In December 2013, Land Securities was granted planning permission to transform the part derelict site opposite Ealing town hall into a vibrant leisure and cultural destination.

In July 2014, Land Securities signed Picturehouse Cinemas for an eight-screen cinema – its largest cinema to date. The 1,000 seat cinema, which will incorporate the most digitally advanced projection and sound systems to ensure the best film experience, will include a feature entrance foyer located at the heart of the scheme within its central piazza, with a customer café and bar.

Beyond the 1,000 seat cinema, the £100 million scheme will include a high-quality mix of restaurants, cafes, shops, bars and up to 161 new homes, and will greatly improve pedestrian links between New Broadway, Bond Street and Walpole Park.

When the agreement between Picturehouse and Land Securities was signed, Lyn Goleby, Managing Director at Picturehouse Cinemas, said:

“We are delighted to have closed a deal with Land Securities for the cinema and event space in the Ealing Filmworks. This will be an exciting and unique development for the Ealing area.

“The cinema will be created to capture a unique feel and reference the historical context of Ealing as a home of British film. There is huge potential to build on the already diverse and creative mix of uses in the town centre and the development will be a very positive boost for the local economy.”

Julian Bell, leader of Ealing Council, added: “This announcement is great news for Ealing and brings the building of a new cinema and the creation of a fantastic new £100 million leisure quarter even closer.

“The council has been working hard to bring a cinema back to Ealing and the selection of the operator is a very important step towards achieving that. Ealing is synonymous with film and this announcement shows that top quality cinema operators want to be in West London’s fastest developing town centre.”

Public consultation

Before submitting a planning application, Land Securities consulted the public on the overall vision and components of the scheme and received over 90% support for our plans from local residents.

Next steps

  • In December 2013, Land Securities was granted outline planning consent by Ealing Council. The Greater London Authority (GLA) also approved the outline planning application earlier this year.
  • Further design details will be now be submitted to the Planning Department and construction could begin as early as 2016
  • It is anticipated that the cinema, shops, restaurants and other cultural spaces could open in late 2017, with the residential apartments completed in 2018

To ensure disruption is kept to a minimum during construction, Land Securities would only use contractors registered under the Considerate Constructors scheme.
