Panter Hudspith cuts ribbon on £1.2m East Dulwich cinema

  • Comment

Panter Hudspith Architects has converted a Victorian church and schoolhouse in East Dulwich, London into a new 850m2 cinema

Originally built in 1882, the existing structure had been ‘blighted by an unsympathetic conversion’ in the 1960s.

Panter Hudspith’s £1.2million project has revealed most of the building’s original features and features a large triple-height foyer which links the entrance to a bar and café and on the upper floor.

The 1960’s suspended ceilings have been removed, uncovering the original timber roof trusses, while an additional 53-seat cinema has been housed in a two-storey steel extension to the rear of the schoolhouse.
