Refurbished with full recliner seating in the summer of 2022- no changes to the screens aside from new stadia structures and the recliners themselves.
Refurbished with full recliner seating in the summer of 2022.
Opened August 18th 2022 following Luxe refurbishment.
The BFI will take over operations/programming of the IMAX from Odeon on July 19th 2022, ahead of a full relaunch in the autumn - no word on whether the laser projectors will go in at this stage though.
Cinema has been bought by Odeon - currently being refurbished to become an Odeon Luxe complex to open in summer 2022. Per the licensing documents sent to Ealing Council, new screen capacities are 154 in the biggest screen, 140 in the premium iSense screen, and varying seat counts down to 50 in the smallest.
Refurbishment started in March 2022, IMAX seating to be replaced with current Vue ‘standard’ seats, and all other screens to be re-stepped with recliner seating installed. All public facing and back of house areas will be brought in line with Vue house style, much like the company’s cinema in Salford (Lowry Quayside).
£6million refurbishment of this cinema to begin at some point in 2022 (as part of a wider renovation of the Printworks in general), with a new 20 year lease agreed.
Refurbished during COVID-19 lockdown in March 2020, overall capacity now 750 fully reclining seats, with smallest screen holding 72 guests and the biggest holding 139.
Don’t think they’ve actually changed the dimensions of the screens, these current batch of Vue recliner conversions just seem to focus on the seats and general works to the foyer area. Scope’s the least of their priorities apparently, even though my local (Preston) had screen 7 converted to the format in 2017.
Reopening fully on August 21st 2020, with recliner seats and new foyer- refurbishment completed during COVID-19 lockdown
Refurbished during COVID-19 lockdown, will reopen August 2020 with full recliner seating.
This cinema was the very first Vue site to become full-recliner in December 2015- the biggest screen now holds 126, and the smallest holds 43.
Cinema was one of the first to benefit from installation of Vue’s reclining seats in 2017, the biggest screen now holds 146, and the smallest holds 67. Overall capacity is 749.

Picturehouse no longer operate this cinema, as the museum tendered the contract to a company called INDY Cinema Group in September 2019. As of November 1st of that year, the cinema is once again fully independent, and operating under the name Pictureville.
Refurbishment completed on Friday 13th December 2019, the cinema now features 898 reclining seats, with capacities varying from 139 in the biggest screens, to 39 in the smallest. Dolby 7.1 installed throughout the cinema, which is now operating Vue’s latest specification for the retail offering.
Cinema to be completely refurbished in Q4 2019 with full recliner seating and new foyer
Cinema was refurbished (and downsized) in 2019, the biggest screen now seats 166, and the smallest seats 50. All seats now electric power recliners, and the cinema features Vue’s next generation foyer concept ‘The Edit Bar’.
Refurbishments now completed, with new entrance and foyer area built alongside the replacement of all seating with 533 recliners (with 53 in the smallest screens, and 115 in the biggest), and the installation of 7.1 surround in all screens.
This cinema will begin an intensive refurbishment programme in April 2017 to bring it in line with modern multiplex standards.
