Southfields cinema SW18 London - was Riley's snooker hall

Southfields cinema SW18 London - was Riley's snooker hall

There is a plan afoot to convert Riley’s snooker hall (once Jesters) on the corner of Wimbledon Park Road and Pirbright Road, Southfields London SW18, into a cinema.

Which it was originally.

Having been inside, it is a great building, proper full height ceiling and wasted as a snooker hall. Unless the vast space was for fag smoke. It looks horrible from the outside especially the blank walls on the sides.

Meeting is at 8pm 23rd Nov (Tuesday next week) at Gardens Tennis Club, 343 Wimbledon Park Road (past the petrol station heading towards Wimbledon Village and the tennis courts).

See this on Southfields cinema revival >

Robert Richman (a local) is the instigator of all this; he is thinking along the lines of the Clapham Picture House.

Needs community support; is a good idea, although the rather quiet nature of Southfields might not help ticket sales; and there is competition in both directions on the tube. And at Southside shopping centre.

But a boutique cinema would be fun to have. Kid’s shows Saturday mornings etc. What fun!
