Hackney Picturehouse Screen 5

Hackney, London


Hackney Picturehouse opened in 2011 as a four-screen cinema. Due to its success Earle Architects have been engaged twice to create additional screens; first the Lounge Screen (2014) and Screen 5 (2017) within under-used and back-of-house spaces.

Screen 5 was created from a storage area on the first floor of the building and provides 59 luxury reclining seats and features state-of-the-art projection and surround sound technology. 

A new steel and oak staircase within a former lift shaft links the existing ground floor bar and foyer with the new screen.
