So named by Danish settlers, Greenwich (Anglo-Saxon equivalent Grenewic) means the green place on the bay (vig, wich) or near the mouth of a river (similarly, Sandwich). Greenwich is notable for its royal connections and maritime history, giving its name to the Greenwich Meridian (0° longitude) and Greenwich Mean Time.
The Greenwich Cinema was a modern purpose-built three-screen cinema designed by Howard and Unick. Opening in 1989, the cinema did solid business until multiplex competition caused it to close in 2002. A few years later, Picturehouse arranged a lease with the Royal Borough of Greenwich to rescue the cinema, extensively refurbishing it and adding extra screens and a bar.
