Plans in for Eltham six-screen cinema complex

News Shopper: Plans in for Eltham six-screen cinema complex Plans in for Eltham six-screen cinema complex

PLANS are now in to convert an old Eltham store into a six-screen cinema complex.

Under the plans, the old Poundland high street shop - now owned by Greenwich Council - will be demolished.

In its place will be a part-three and four storey mixed use development with two ground floor restaurants and an area for use as a cafe or by the community.

The foyer will be at the rear of the building at ground floor level with three cinema screens provided in both the basement and on the first floor level.

It is estimated the completed cinema, which will have its main entrance on the high street, would have more than 900 seats.

There will be no off-street parking but it will incorporate an area to store bikes.

A decision on the application, available to view online, will be made by a council planning board at a date to be set.

What a waste of money, there used to be 3 cinema's in Eltham years ago, they closed down on account of no cinema goer's. The council would be better off building another supermarket, that would attract more people to visit Eltham.

The old Poundland? It is still there and has Greggs attached!
They should build it on the old Grove Market Place which has been unused and boarded up for years or demolish the old Tesco building that is round the back next to Sainsburys.

True, but it would be great if they were to plant a few trees as part of the plan. As the drawings illustrate, this would make a big difference to the streetscape. Unfortunately, this is probably another cynical trick where the council decorates it's plans with green stuff but doesn't deliver against the plan. I still remembering their promise of planting 2012 trees as a positive legacy of the Olympics in LBG.
