Pinewood opens Attenborough Stage

Stage increases capacity at studios by 7%

LONDON Blighty’s Pinewood Studios has unveiled a 30,000 sq-ft purpose-built stage for film and TV production, named after multi-hyphenate Richard Attenborough.

It is the second largest space at Pinewood, after the 60,000 sg-ft 007 stage, and has increased capacity by 7%.

It is already being used for Working Title and Universal’s “Les Miserables,” toplining Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe and Anne Hathaway.

Pinewood, which has hosted a number of large TV productions, including “The Magicians” and “Got to Dance,” said the new stage would suit both big pic productions and large light entertainment TV shows.

Producer David Puttnam and Pinewood chairman Michael Grade officially opened the new facility, which was announced in February 2011, on Monday.

“This new stage helps demonstrate Pinewood’s ongoing commitment to improving its infrastructure, and offering both film and television clients the most up-to-date, flexible and secure facilities possible,” said Pinewood chief exec Ivan Dunleavy.

“Les Miserables” construction co-ordinator Malcolm Roberts added, “Pinewood’s new facility is a revolutionary stage with cutting-edge technology. Its lighting and access are a credit to the design.”
