Work on the The Old Picture House completes

Our £5m transformation of Lichfield’s 1930s Regal Cinema into a high quality apartment development is complete.

Homeowners have started moving into The Old Picture House in Tamworth Street, which comprises 36 one and two bedroom apartments.

Working with Lodge Park Homes, we have carefully restored the building’s Art Deco style frontage and named each style of apartment after a 1930s cinema star.

Many of the apartments have generously sized balconies with views of the Lichfield skyline, including the cathedral. They also benefit from floor to ceiling windows, allocated undercroft parking and superfast broadband connectivity. 

To mark the completion, Lichfield MP Michael Fabricant took a tour of the development with our director Warren Jones.

Mr Fabricant said: “I’m really impressed by this transformation of former cinema building which unfortunately lay empty for many years and was in a terrible state.

“These are fabulous new homes with excellent rooftop views and an unbeatable location in the centre of our city.” 

 Warren added: “We’re very proud of this  development which now offers some of the highest standard apartments in the city.

“We have sold more than 70 per cent with buyers ranging from first time buyers to investors and retirees. They are all keen to take advantage of the site’s city centre location, and the cinema heritage has also been a big factor.

“Lichfield is a wonderful city to live and I am looking at more opportunities to provide more homes here.”

Karen Heath, sales and marketing director at Lodge Park Homes, added: “We feel very privileged to be able to be involved in the restoration of a part of Lichfield’s history. The Old Picture House is a fantastic development offering a high standard of finish, in an excellent city centre location”.

The view home at The Old Picture House will open in early 2021. For more details on the remaing apartments available, contact Connells Lichfield: 01543 262376 /
