David Lean Cinema
The David Lean Cinema is a small cinema built in the 1990s to honour the director David Lean who was born in the town. It was located in Croydon, London on Katharine Street. It is centrally situated within the Croydon Clocktower arts complex which also includes the Museum of Croydon and Croydon Central Library.
The David Lean Cinema is described as a small, intimate, art house-style cinema which showcases the best of British film and World cinema as well as classic re-releases and recent favourites. After 16 years the cinema closed on April 21, 2011. A campaign to 'Save the David Lean Cinema' has been established. In the mean time films are being shown at the Spreadeagle next door to the Clocktower. The aim of the campaign is to see the cinema in use again.
Croydon Council transferred the digital projector to Faifield Hall, Croydon (but it is not usable there). The Fairfield Hall does show a limited number of films under the David Lean Banner
