|A Chance for a Sneak Peak Inside the New Cinema
Old Library building taking part in the Open House Weekend
The building which is soon to house Acton’s new cinema is going to be opened to the public during the forthcoming Open House Weekend.
On Saturday 4 and Sunday 5 September there will be a series of guided tours of the building where work to finish off the Act One Cinema is approaching completion.
They are free but likely to be popular so booking online soon is recommended.
The former public library is a Grade 2 listed building which was erected between 1898 and 1900 and designed by Maurice B. Adams for English philanthropist John Passmore Edwards.
The library closed in 2014 but the upper floors have recently been brought back into use by an educational training company and the two-screen cinema will eventually open on the ground floor with a ‘pop-up’ single screen cinema with a bar café as an interim solution until funding can be secured to complete the plans which have been granted permission by Ealing Council.
