Regent Street Cinema

25th February 2015

Work is well under way by the University of Westminster to transform the birthplace of British cinema back into a multimedia facility and teaching space for students and the wider community.

Back in the day, the cinema hosted the Lumiere brothers first demonstration of their cinematography and was also the site of the first photographic studio in Europe. In another first, the cinema hosted the X-rated film Life Begins Tomorrow featuring Picasso and Le Corbusier to riotous acclaim. The buildings big screen fell into disuse in 1981.

We are working in collaboration with Outside Studios and Tim Ronalds Architects to provide interpretation graphics and signage for this exciting HLF funded project.
