Box Office Cultural Hub

 

Medium Scale Project (£5m- 9m)

The former Box Office cinema has become a problem building in the town centre. As the building and plot were designed to not need daylight, it is difficult to reuse for any other purpose. Putting the building back into a cultural use would both remove the negative impact of a vacant and run down building in a prominent location and introduce a new facility to the town centre.

Options for redevelopment of the large building could include an art café and gallery space and an auditorium for film screenings, lectures and spoken word performance. There could also be a flexible studio/ performance space for music, dance and other cultural events.

Erewash Borough Council commissioned DCA Consultants to produce a Cultural Hub Feasibility Study for the Former Palace Theatre in Long Eaton.
