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. Also in July 2014, Ealing Council made a compulsory purchase order (CPO) for the site, including the YMCA, Walpole House, Flava’s Bar and Grill and the semi-derelict land previously occupied by the cinema. In October 2015, the council was told that the Secretary of State had confirmed the compulsory purchase order.

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.

Now that the CPO has been confirmed by the Secretary of State, the cinema and scheme could be open by early 2019.

Investing in the future of Ealing

Our development - Ealing Filmworks - represents a significant investment in the future of Ealing. Our proposals will:

  • Provide a comprehensive redevelopment that is fully in line with Ealing policy
  • Create around 300 new jobs
  • Deliver an investment of over £100 million in Ealing
  • Bring back into use land that has lain derelict for five years
  • Increase trade and footfall in the town centre
  • Create a new public square and attractive linkages with active frontages from New Broadway through to Bond Street and Walpole Park

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.
