This summer, residents in and around Harrow are in luck. For the first time in 14 years, Ealing is getting its very own cinema in the form of a brand new multi-screen venue complete with live music & entertainment space.
The new venue, dubbed ‘The Ealing Project’ will open on Thursday 30th June at the site of the former Karma Club at Ealing Broadway. The venue is approximately 20 minutes drive away from Harrow.
To celebrate the opening, The Ealing Project will be going back in time and freezing tickets at the 2008 price of £6 throughout July, the last year Ealing last had a cinema.
The Ealing Project will be showcasing all of the year’s hottest blockbusters such as Jurassic World Dominion and Lightyear alongside a range of independent films, as well as hosting comedy clubs, quiz evenings and lots of live music.
The new opening is from the team at Really Local Group, the people behind Catford Mews and Reading Biscuit Factory. Like its other venues, The Ealing Project will be more than your usual high street cinema, boasting a huge space for live music, events and exhibitions. During the day the space will be available to be used for co-working, grabbing a coffee or drink at the fully stocked bar and cafe, catching up with friends or for local groups to use as they need.
Really Local Group works with the local community to ensure that the space and programming is reflective of the area. The Ealing Project will partner with local musicians and artists, building on Ealing’s rich musical heritage through a programme of unmissable events, from live music to art installations. Highlights in the upcoming programme include a collaboration with Bollo Brook youth club and a screening of the Ealing-made documentary Suburban Steps to Rockland, centred around the famous Ealing Club.
The Ealing Project has also introduced a new membership scheme. At just £45 a year for an annual adult membership with discount Membership is also available for students, over 50s, NHS and Bluelight card holders.
Preston Benson, Founder of Really Local Group commented: “We can’t wait to open the doors to The Ealing Project, breathing new life into a disused venue and bringing an exciting range of film and culture to the local community. We’re very proud of the space we’ve created and we’re confident Ealing locals and newcomers alike will enjoy the huge new space and rich programme of films, art installations and events.”
Andrew Rollings, centre director at Ealing Broadway, said “The Ealing Project will be a fantastic addition to Ealing Broadway, with shoppers able to factor in a cinema trip, event, exhibition, or evening of live music to their visit to the centre.
“We’re also excited for locals to have the opportunity to use the new space for work meetings or catch ups with friends and welcome the new selection of films which will be available. The Ealing Project will complement our strong mix of retailers and restaurants at the centre, which we hope to continue expanding over the next few months.”
