I like the idea of keeping the Whiteladies Picture House as a community space. It is a listed building and so planning permission for various proposals has been denied. The Select Committee on Trade and International Relations on the Copyright Amendment Bill [B13B] While I applaud an update of the South African law to bring it in line with international best practice to support the creative industries and protect artists and performers, I suspect the bill as it stands will have a number of unintended consequences that will effectively reduce foreign investment. Humm seems like signing this petition may be counter productive. We believe that the proposed conversion of the Grade2 listed Whiteladies Picture House into six flats and a three-screen cinema will permanently destroy the architectural heritage of the building. Guest 33 Mar 26, , The cinema also featured a marble staircase with mahogany panelling and a balustrade which led up to a balcony with leaded lights. These plans will destroy the very fabric of the building and ruin a vast amount of architectural heritage that is contained within.

Opposing development of flats in the Whiteladies Picture House. It certainly sounded posh – better than “Picture House” anyway – and suited its Clifton location. The Jockey Club proposes to build flats in blocks storeys high and a bed hotel around the race course.
We the undersigned hereby object to the development in and around the vicinity of the Sizwe Contagious Diseases Hospital for health, safety, religious, cultural, environmental and heritage reasons and call on the Whitwladies Provincial Government to stop the development.
Guest 26 Mar 25, The whiteladies road former cinema site has so cinems potential as a multi facet art venue to do anything else would be crime and a serious whiteladdies down to all art lovers in the City of Bristol and surrounding areas.
The permission means that the outside will not be touched but internally the seats, projection rooms, suspended ceiling, timber cladding and foyer partitions will go. The discrimination is because people lack knowledge and mainstream media stigmatises the disease.
Bristol Cinema Then & Now – Whiteladies Picture House
The proposal outlines that the flats will be built in the space currently occupied by an original and beautiful sprung-floor ballroom, and that the three-screen cinema will be built in the space which was originally a glorious single full-height auditorium. We are a group of neighbours launching a campaign to fight the proposals and raise awareness. The Whiteladies picture house group do not own the building. Considering its pedigree the cinema was strangely unadventurous and was the last major city picture house to be witeladies for the whiteladles.
It is sad that after all that has happened the owner seems to want to persist in developing the building in an unsympathetic way, and is clearly only motivated purely by profit.
Guest 35 Mar 26, I don’t live in Bristol but appreciate Whiteladied cultural legacy and do not want to live in a country devoid of character and heritage. An elegant restaurant and dance hall built next to the cinema now house the Dog and Duck pub.
As whitelasies expat our beautiful buildings are very important heritage and should be protected. And by highlighting its possibilities in serving the Community as a mixed use arts venue and social hub they underline its incalculable potential for every kind of educational and cultural activity without which Clifton continues to be impoverished”.

It resisted the trend and even billed itself as “The Home of the Silent Screen”. Our petitions are mentioned in the media every day, so creating a petition is a great way to get noticed by the public and the decision makers. Unfortunately most people are so naive in their understanding of planning and property law that these kinds of yoghurt-knitting campaigns rarely work.

It was a very grand building in a prime location. Subscribe in a reader. Promote this petition to people signing other petitions in our site. This is partly due to the difficulties of converting the building sufficiently for these purposes due to its listed status, but also to the level of public support still in existence for the venue to be reopened, either as a cinema once more or for other community good.
Whiteladies Cinema, Bristol BS8
Despite having planning permission to convert the building into a dry gym, retail units, restaurant or a church, no company has so far been willing to take on the project. As I spent time with him, I found he had a lot of interesting things to say not only about making films, but also about the role of artists and intellectuals in China.
By signing, I authorize Tristan Fowler to hand over my signature to those who have power on this issue. They only have ideas and aspirations.
We should respect and preserve what is part of our history. I found Zhao to be an engaging person, and I thought that he might make an interesting profile.
I totally agree with views of the petition whitelades and deplore yet another attempt by the owners to significantly alter this heritage and wonderful building in order to bolster their profits. I visited the Hampstead Everyman in London last weekend, and have been visiting the cinema for nearly 50 years! Fan writes of Disorder:
