Wellington cinema sold

The future of a landmark cinema in Wellington has been thrown back into uncertainty after being bought by new owners. Chris Evans, one of the directors at Telford Investments, said that he respected the history of the building also saying, “I’ve always lived in Telford and I remember going to the cinema at the Clifton when I was younger.”

The property, including the now disused Dunelm shop, was going to be largely demolished under plans announced by MCO Marylebone at the end of 2017. It was then going to be turned into 52 apartments and retail space, although the familiar art deco frontage was going to be retained. But within 18 months of the plans being announced, the building was back on the market. Options are being kept open at the moment. The Clifton was last used as a cinema in the late 1980s.
