A nine-screen cinema could be coming to Lewisham from operator Empire as part of revised plans for Lewisham Gateway.
The Gateway site is between Lewisham station and Town Centre. Phase one was the four towers by the entrance now completing.
Phase two is for another 530 homes. The initial plans were rejected due to a lack of “affordable” homes. Building heights have been revised down but it was not the height that was the biggest issue but slab-like barrier blocks lining roads.
London Living Rent will now be offered at 106 homes. The cinema appears to be located closest to the town centre and will have 900 seats.
Office space is planned as part of the development.
This shows the sheer amount of space in what was once the roundabout outside the station:
A number of cinemas are underway across south east London. There’s one coming in Catford, two on the drawing board in Woolwich, one in Eltham, one in Sidcup and another in Bromley (alongside the Odeon becoming a Picture House). Oh, and one just outside London in Dartford.
