Lexi Cinema in Kensal Rise launches £150,000 fundraiser to build a second screen for the public.
Staff at a volunteer-run cinema in Kensal Rise hope to raise just under £145,000 so they can open a second screen for the borough’s film fans.
The Lexi Cinema, in Chamberlayne Road, has so far raised £5.900 towards its £150,000 target.
The hugely popular cinema currently has one screen and just 75 seats and is now operating at capacity.
Founder and chief executive Sally Wilton has launched a Spacehive campaign – a fundraising platform created by City Hall that promises to match up to £50,000 in public contributions with its own funds for London businesses.
She said: “The new Lexi Hub will allow us to work with an increasing range of community partners to offer activities which will reach and draw in an even broader range of people from our community.”
