Ealing cinema is closer than you think. Compulsory purchase order has allowed the development work to start next year. Providing everything goes according to the plan. The planning proposal submitted by The Empire cinemas in 2006 expired in 2011 and the council started asking questions as the work did not commence. CPO was the only way forward to resolving this issue between these two parties and the only side that was paying the price was Ealing itself.
Councillor Julian Bell, leader of Ealing Council, said: “Ealing is west London’s fastest growing economy and while we would have preferred not to have needed to make a CPO we simply could not stand back and allow the area to miss out on the benefits that such a development will bring.”
“Bringing a cinema back to Ealing is the news that everyone has been waiting for. It is a fantastic opportunity that will see a large part of Ealing town centre revitalised with a vibrant cultural quarter, more jobs, new homes and more visitors.", he added.
It will be a breath of fresh air to see the development in the part of Ealing which needs modernising. This magnificent cinema will include 8 screens with at least 1000 seats, shops, restaurants and flats on this £100 million project. This unique development will also provide at least 350 jobs.
We hope that beside the regular blockbusters, we shall be able to see independent movies as well. The development is to be completed in 2018 and we can not wait to experience the difference it will bring to our lovely Ealing and its surrounding areas.
