Croydon Clocktower, where the David Lean Cinema is located

The David Lean Cinema is a small cinema built in Croydon, London, in the 1990s, to honour the director David Lean, who was born in the town.[1] It is located within the Croydon Clocktower arts complex on Katharine Street.

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. The cinema closed for three years between 2011 and 2014, during which time films continued to be shown under the David Lean banner at the Fairfield Halls and the Spread Eagle pub. The cinema was reopened as a result of a local campaign.[2][3]
