Olympic Cinema is taking shape...

As the autumnal weather decorates Barnes in a kaleidoscope of leaves, we at Olympic Cinema are progressing apace with our renovations.

We had hoped to be open by the end of 2012, but changes in plans for the café and dining room, kitchens and bar meant our timings were pushed back a little. We are working hard to ensure that we get it right, not just on time and are now aiming to open Spring 2013.

The design and layout of the basement, ground and first floor have been refined to produce a comprehensive and holistic approach to food and beverage in the building as a whole. This will mean that the Members Bar will be able to serve a smaller dining room menu and service lifts have been incorporated to accommodate this addition.

The café and dining room will be very much part of the cinema business, run by us (rather than being outsourced or franchised) and the experience will therefore feel much more inclusive.

For a more in depth outline of the planned spaces, take a look at the ABOUT page.

We only have a few Founder member places left and the closer we get to opening, the quicker places are going, so to check availability contact:


Full details on all the benefits of Founder membership can be found on the MEMBERSHIP page.
