Work is expected to resume on the Chiswick Cinema this coming week in the wake of the occupation by squatters who moved in on 17 March.

It is believed some of them have headed off to the Extinction Rebellion protests in the city centre as they had expressed interest in the climate change protest. They had also placed a poster in the window giving details of the protest.

Locals observed some of the group emerging with their possessions last week.

The cinema owners said they planned to resume work on the project as soon as possible. Nearby resisdents noticed that there were people in high visibility vests and what appeared to be representatives of the cinema outside the premises last week (Monday, 15 April).

The cinema had hoped to make a public announcement that week in March to outline developments for the five-screen venue, with a detailed construction contract negotiated, a price agreed, and a start date planned. The timeline has now had to be revised as contractors have been unable to gain access to the site because of the squatters.
