The historical film Twickenham Film Studios has been saved from closure by Sunny Vohra, a Kensington resident and film magnate.
The business man, who has been described as a film lover, has employed one the studio’s most prominent campaigners as CEO.
New CEO Maria Walker helped to get a petition going to save the studios and had it signed by Steven Spielberg.
Walker said she and Vohra planned to rebuild the business, not redevelop it as housing as the previous contender Taylor Wimpey had planned.
The famous studio, established in 1913, had been used in the filming of the Beatles films Help and Hard Day’s Night as well recent hits War Horse and Horrid henry: The Movie.
Long may it last.
