The David Lean Cinema is a 68 seat arts cinema located within Croydon Clocktower. Most screenings are now presented by the Save the David Lean Cinema Campaign; a non-profit Community Interest Company.
The Campaign's screenings can be booked online via their website. Phone bookings can be made via TicketSource: Tel. 0333 666 3366 (£1.50 charge for any number of tickets). You can also book in person at Wallace Arnold Worldchoice, 62 George Street, Croydon, CR0 1PD. Open 9:00am – 5:30pm Mon to Fri and 9:30am – 4:30pm Sat.
The above services all close two and half hours before a film starts, and any remaining tickets (as well as tickets for future films)are sold from the box office in the Arts Bar, which opens one hour before every screening. This is cash only. The refund and exchange policy can be found on the campaign website. Enquiries should be made via the website's contact form.
The cinema is accessible by ramp and lift. Helpers attending with a wheelchair user are eligible for a complimentary seat, so contact the Campaign if one is required. The cinema also has an infrared system to assist patrons who have a hearing impairment.
