Mayor Bullock of Lewisham Council announced on the 15th November 2017 that the Council has selected Guildmore Ltd with Pringle Richards Sharratt Architects and Curzon Cinema to build a 3 screen 220 seat cinema at Ladywell Playtower. The decision was revealed at a public meeting at Lewisham Town Hall.
The key benefit of the proposal is to reinstate the long established use of the building as a public events space at the heart of the community, to include:
Saving and restoring the endangered Grade II Listed Playtower
Meeting local demand for a cinema in the Borough
Creation of a new local destination, a place for the community to gather
