Eltham’s planned cinema is taking shape on the High Street with its concrete frame now rising and visible above hoardings.
The total cost will come in at £20.8 million, will include six screens and be operated by Vue.
Once complete it’ll have a Nandos and Pizza Express as well as a sky bar along the lines of Picturehouse in Greenwich.
The cinema is an attempt by Greenwich Council to rejuvenate the High Street which recently saw the departure of Debenhams.
Over £6 million was recently spent on changes to the High Street, funded mainly from TfL’s Local Implementation Plan’s Major Scheme fund.
Though the range of shops has somewhat declined, the hope is a cinema will increase shopper numbers to offer a boost to existing business and shops.
Whilst on the High Street I popped into Ziyafet restaurant near the site. I really would recommend it. Lovely staff too.
