Description

The Wardley Centre was built on the site of the Palace Theatre and Princes Theatre in 1964-1967. The building remained empty until 1983 when it was opened as the National Museum of Photography, Film and Television, later called the National Media Museum and then the National Science and Media Museum. The museum housed the first IMAX installation in the UK. Adjacent was the Library Theatre, which was incorporated into the museum in 1992 and together the IMAX and theatre formed the Pictureville cinema or theatre. The cinema was known as the Picturehouse cinema during a partnership programme with the chain between 2014 and 2019. The cinema has three screens: Pictureville, IMAX and the Cubby Broccoli Cinema.
