Peckhamplex cinema will remain open for business during nearby works

Popular independent cinema Peckhamplex will remain open despite work to the neighbouring multi-storey car park, Southwark Council has confirmed, writes Adam Becket…

The upper levels of the multi-storey car park on Rye Lane are being redeveloped by the council, in partnership with Make Shift, into over 28,000 sq ft of studios and media for start up businesses.

During the building work the car park will be reduced to just 50 spaces, but this will be open 24 hours a day, with free use in evenings and at weekends.

Councillor Mark Williams, Southwark Council’s cabinet member for regeneration and new homes, said:  “Peckhamplex is an important social and cultural amenity and the council intends to ensure that it continues to thrive.

“As the car park building remains an area of possible redevelopment in the next few years, the council is committed to working with Peckhamplex to identify potential options for relocation within the central Peckham area.”

Peckhamplex Director John Reiss, along with Simone Brown, Marianne Gary and Rakesh Makhecha were recently honoured by the Mayor of Southwark for their services to the borough.

Mr Reiss said: “Peckhamplex values its loyal, local clients and the increasing number of customers coming from across London who can enjoy a wide range of the latest film releases at affordable prices.”
