New landmark cinema and restaurants for Eltham town centre
- Modern facilities for the local community
- Modern design subtle nod to Art-Deco cinemas from the 1930s
- Procured through the Scape Major Works Framework
Our team of leisure experts are constructing a striking new leisure scheme that consists of a new six screen cinema and restaurants. The development will become a landmark for the town centre and features a ‘Sky Bar’ with an external seating terrace that will wrap around the cinema, cantilevering and projecting animation onto the High Street, complementing the active street-level restaurant users below. The curved corners to the building at ground and first floor levels also give a subtle nod to the Art-Deco cinemas of the 1930s.
The project is part of the ambitious regeneration of the High Street, making it an entertainment destination for local people and the wider community, increasing the number of visitors to Eltham which will then help stimulate other businesses in the area.
Cllr Denise Hyland said:
"This project is making great progress and when it's complete it will provide a new six-screen cinema with a major cinema operator Vue Entertainment, two high profile restaurants and a Sky Bar. Not every council can say they have built such a major facility for the high street."
Adam Worrall, operations director at Willmott Dixon, said:
"We've been working in this borough for ten years and are very proud to be part of this bold new scheme. With local delivery from our Dartford office and working with our local supply chain partners, we understand the positive difference this will make to the community and look forward to a successful, quality completion of the next stage later this year."
The new cinema complex scheme will see new jobs created during the construction phase and once the complex opens, scheduled for spring 2019.
