We Are Open!

Happy New Year and thank you all for your patience during our relocation. We're pleased to say we have finally moved into our new home at 97 Sclater Street, E1 6HR!

We couldn’t be more excited about welcoming you to our new library and café, where you'll be able to continue to access our unique collection of films and books whilst enjoying some of the finest coffee in Shoreditch. This is also where the highly anticipated Close-Up Cinema is due to open in the spring. The café will be open 9am-9pm daily and the library will be open 12pm-9pm as before. You can now contact us on our new number 02037847970.

We would like to thank you once again for your support and generosity without which this project would not be possible!
