Dear Friends of the Picture Palace Campaign

We are absolutely delighted to announce that the Everyman Crystal Palace at 25 Church Road will be officially opening on Friday 16 November with screenings including Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald and The Grinch

To book tickets for this and other films, simply go online at

And, don’t forget to sign up to their newsletter for ‘special bribes, incentives and Everyman listings each week’.

The return of the cinema is absolutely fantastic news for the Crystal Palace district centre and for all the residents and traders who have supported the campaign, in many cases all the way back to its beginning in June 2009. It would not have been possible without your incredible support – literally a cast of thousands – so a heartfelt thank you to everyone for your immense loyalty, determination, generosity, huge efforts, time and perseverance.

Since January, the Everyman team have been working flat out to get the cinema restored and ready for action. It’s been a fabulous achievement by them, the building looks beautiful, its exterior is being returned to its Art Deco elegance, and the interior is just stunning.

They are really excited about coming to Crystal Palace as Crispin Lilly, CEO of Everyman Cinemas, says:

“It has been incredible to watch the anticipation build for the reopening in Crystal Palace, and we’ve got a spectacular venue to offer the community. “The support from Picture Palace Campaign has been phenomenal so we’re really looking forward to seeing you all enjoy your new local Everyman.”

All things come to an end, and of course there is now no longer a need for a Picture Palace Campaign. We shall be donating the £275.58 in the campaign bank account to a cinema charity, The Cinema Museum at Kennington.

Here’s wishing you many happy times at Everyman Crystal Palace in the months and years to come.

With very best wishes and a huge THANK YOU again for your amazing support over the past nine years. The cinema wouldn’t be opening without you. The Picture Palace Campaign team

                                                                                                   -THE END-

Run (just a handful of) the many, many credits and fantastic memories……..
