The Phoenix Cinema is asking for architects, planners and construction experts to come forward as it looks to build a second screen.
A year on from its funding crisis, management at the cinema in East Finchley believe that a second screen at the independent venue will secure its financial future.
The idea has been talked about for three decades according to Phoenix Cinema Trust chair Alison Gold. They are now hoping to move towards it becoming a reality. It would allow the picture house to vary the films it shows and allow for more events. It is hoped it may allow the cinema to break even. The screen would be built on the car park in Fairlawn Avenue, behind the venue.
