A £100 million ‘film quarter’ is set to transform central Ealing, giving it a cinema for the first time since 2008. Developer Land Securities have submitted a planning application for the site, and signed a deal with Ealing Council to create a 0.8ha leisure destination with a new multi-screen cinema, cafes, bars, shops and restaurants along with up to 161 flats, to be known as Ealing Filmworks.

The proposed scheme will create pedestrian routes between Walpole Park, the New Broadway and Bond Street, and a flexible performance area with amphitheatre-style seating and an outdoor screen. The initiative will create 350 jobs. If Ealing Council approves the plans, Land Securities hopes to open the cinema in late 2017 and complete the development by 2018.
