We are a Community Interest Company (CIC) formed by local Acton residents who got together to lease the disused old library building on the High Street, keep out  developers and repurpose the building’s original role as a community hub. 

We have finally opened our cinema - see the cinema website 






The old library building was gifted to the people of Acton and has stood empty for 7 years. Our plan is to give it back to the people by creating a community space with a two-screen cinema and a café. A destination that Acton can be proud of.

Our first screen is will be operational very soon and we look forward to opening the doors to this building once more

"The future may be smaller, more curated, but society will still need a place for first dates and old friendships, a spot for teenagers to throng, families to treat themselves, and all manner of people to be somewhere other than home, somewhere else than in their heads, around others but at the same time not, happily lost in those perfect lines and indelible endings."
