Petition: Give priority to Ealing's Cinema and open it as soon as possible

Petition to the new owners of the Ealing Cinema site: St George.

Unfortunately the Ealing Cinema site has been sold to another developer AGAIN. In August 2016 it was announced that the site had been sold by Land Securiites to St George PLC, the developers of the still-unfinished Dickens Yard development.


Cllr Jon Ball said:

"Ealing residents demand that a new cinema is built as soon as possible, after this sorry saga of delay after delay.

"I have concerns about St George taking over the site. I have sought assurances that St George will be going ahead immediately to implement the Filmworks development that Land Securities planned."

Ealing has been without a cinema for almost a decade, and this is the second time the site has changed hands because the developer has decided not to start construction.

Will you sign our petition to the developers St George?

We the undersigned call upon Michael Bryn-Jones, Managing Director of St George PLC to make the construction of the already planned Filmworks scheme a priority, and to open the new cinema as soon as possible.


Note that the original petition text was "We the undersigned call upon Michael Bryn-Jones, Managing Director of St George PLC to make the construction of the already planned Filmworks scheme a priority, announce a completion date, and provide reassurances that there is still interest from Picturehouse Cinemas to run the venue."

    It’s a total disgrace and a farce that the cinema has been demolished and removed as a community asset for so many years and reflects badly on Ealing Council. Please prioritise the rebuild!

    Edith Rambure-Lambert. Please save our only cinema in Ealing. We have been deprived of one for YEARS! We need something else than shops and restaurants and more shops.

    Having a good local cinema in Ealing near to the existing theatre and restaurants will bring business and people to the town . It is a resource that many different age groups can use. We really need a cinema .

    Ealing needs a cinema, there’s no doubt, and it’s been a ridiculous amount of time for a developer to sit on a lot.
