legend450m extension to Pinewood Studios will include tour experience

The movie studio used for the filming of the James Bond and Star Wars franchises has announced plans for a major new tourist attraction.

Pinewood Studios wants to invest in a 450m extension of its current site near Iver Heath in Buckinghamshire and create around 3,500 jobs.

Screen Hub UK will include the Pinewood Studios experience, a 350,000 square foot (32,500 square meters) cinema-inspired attraction.

The company said it was the “right time” for a visitor experience.

Movies, TV series, commercials and pop promotions have been made at Pinewood Studios for over 80 years.

Popular blockbusters and classics have been shot on the site – from Oliver Twist and the Carry On series, to the Alien thriller and several of the Marvel movies.

The Pinewood Group said Screen Hub UK will be a “global growth pole for the film industries” based on a 77-acre site to the south and adjacent to existing world-class studios.

In addition to attracting visitors, it will include new film production facilities with ‘live’ links to experience, a training and skills center and a center for business growth in the creative industries.

It is estimated that the hub will probably generate 230 million euros for the economy and 125 million euros for the tourism industry per year.

President Paul Golding said his plan was a response to government and Buckinghamshire Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) recognition of the studios as a “major economic asset”.

In his

local industrial strategy, LEP said it would build its plans around “the future rise and development of our global assets,” which include the studios.

“We have been looking at a visitor experience for some time and believe the time has come to present it,” said Mr. Golding.

“The project will strengthen British cinema and create much needed jobs and spending.”

He added that the company hoped that its planning application, currently in preparation, “would have wide support.”

Consultations with the local community and broader stakeholders will begin next week, the group said.
