Are you familiar with the Old Picture House on Tamworth Street, Lichfield? At long last a change is coming and a great one at that. Due to its historic significance to Lichfield the treasured façade will be restored whilst the area to the back will be re-developed into a new four storey residential development of 38 new premium apartments, some with views over the Lichfield Cathedral. The development is complete with retail space on the ground floor and secure private under cover car parking. 

This new high-specification development provides much needed housing helping to solve the Greater Birmingham area housing shortage.


Somerton Jones and Lodge Park Homes acquired the former Picture House in the Lichfield City’s central pedestrian area with the view of creating a new residential development to do this former gem of Lichfield justice and turn it into an iconic building once again to bring many more people to the Lichfield.


Lichfield is renown as a beautiful cathedral city, so it is important that the development is in keeping with the local vernacular. The surrounding buildings to these new apartments are grade two listed and the building will be keeping its façade. We have a wide range of passionate and experienced partner consultants which makes it easy to deliver architectural and structural design on this project.


Historic Lichfield with its rich heritage is thriving, combining great  shopping, recreation and diverse eateries making this small city a real gem in the midlands.


Be part of history, be part of The Old Picture House.

Located in the heart of historic Lichfield you have the extraordinary opportunity to become part of history. 


The Regal Cinema was opened in 1932.

With over 1000 seats and charming Art Deco design this theatre was a place to see and be seen.

It changed hands a few times but retained its Art Deco charm until its closure in 1974.

Since then the building housed a Bingo Club, Supermarket, Snooker Club, etc but in January 2015 plans were proposed to make this site a part of the Lichfield Centre again and build apartments retaining the façade. Planning permission was given for apartments and retail units on the site and demolition began on 26th July 2018 taking this 30s icon into the 21st century. The first steps to becoming your new home.
