In October 2018, the former covered market was awarded Grade II listed status. This means the plans we submitted in January 2018 have to be revisited. So, we are revising our plans to transform the area.
We have been working on this exciting project since 2016 and we have learned a lot in that time. Most importantly, it is the community, not just the location, that makes Woolwich what it is.
We’re delighted to announce that we’ve partnered with neighbourhood cinema operator Picturehouse to deliver a new five-screen cinema at Woolwich Exchange, which will bring the area its first cinema in 20 years.
Picturehouse operates 26 cinemas around the UK in architecturally unique buildings, including the popular Greenwich Picturehouse in Greenwich town centre.
The plans will celebrate a golden era of film in Woolwich, paying homage to the former Regal, Century and Grenada cinemas, transforming the town centre and creating a vibrant new destination for film lovers.
The Woolwich Picturehouse cinema will offer big screen entertainment ranging from Hollywood blockbusters to art house releases, as well as somewhere for people to eat, meet and relax.
