Olympic Studios | Cinema | Café: Local Treasure in Barnes

A few weeks ago, I had the great privilege of photographing a Best of Richmond networking event at Olympic Studios on Church Road in Barnes.  What a treat of a gig!  Olympic Studios has a long and fascinating history in the recording world and, thankfully, was rescued a few years ago from luxury property developers and turned into a cinema, café, studios and member’s lounge.  The décor and feel are definitely vintage, but with contemporary fare stylish international films and live broadcasts of plays and operas.  Olympic Studios is a brilliant example of visionary people resuscitating an historical patch of the high street in a thoroughly modern and stylish way.
