I heard a rumour about this a while ago. Anyone know if this is still happening? It wasn't due until 2014 I think, but it would be good to look forward to having a reasonably priced cinema within walking distance…

we've looked into this... apparently a number of options were considered for the town hall, including an art house cinema, but in the end the contract was given to the Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts.

a spokesman for the Academy told us this:

' Regarding Hornsey Town Hall, we are currently fundraising to renovate and rebuild the Hall as a campus for Mountview. The building will be a full-time home for the school, with a new theatre, studio and workshop. There will also be spaces for our community and education programme. The revitalised building will create a sustainable and thriving hub for the creative arts in the community. For more information, please see: mountview.org.uk/futuremoves '

there's also this link for an overview/news:

Shame about the cinema but it's good to know it will be some sort of community hub even if not a Picture House (sniff). Thanks for the info.
