Originally Hackney Central Library and later a concert venue, this landmark building was converted into a cinema in 2011, creating some stunning interior spaces. Picturehouse Cinemas and architects Panter Hudspith transformed the building into a five-screen venue with a restaurant and two bars. The Picturehouse touch has brought a mix of modern industrial glamour and urban cool to the building, which is overtly bold and brutalist in construction. It's a fun, funky and impressive place to hang out.
