Starr Cinema at Tate Modern

Located on Level 1 of the Natalie Bell Building in the historic Tate Modern art gallery, on the south bank of the River Thames, across from St, Paul’s Cathedral. The building was originally built in 1952 as the Bankside B electricity power station. Designed in an Art Deco style by architect Sir Giles Gilbert Scott. The main feature of the exterior is a square chimney which is 325ft high. The original main turbine room is 509ft long, 240ft wide and 85ft high. It was closed on 31st October 1981.

The vacant building was taken over by the Tate Gallery in April 1994. Construction work began in in June 1995 on a £134 million conversion into an art gallery, devoted to modern art (the older well established Tate Britain further west along the River Thames in Chelsea is devoted to British art). The Tate Modern was opened in 2000. It has been used as a location for several films over the years including “Judge Dredd”, “Richard II” and “Mission: Impossible - Fallout” starring Tom Cruise.

The Starr Cinema is equipped to screen 16mm, 35mm and laser projection, and has a Dolby Atmos sound system (at the end of 2021 it was one one the 14 UK cinemas equipped with this sound system). Films screened are independent movies, which deal with modern art & design.
