UK’s largest mixing stage – Warner Bros De Lane Lea (WBDLL)

Posted on: Friday 14th of October 2022

The 32,000 sq ft new home for Warner Bros De Lane Lea (WBDLL) is now open. De Lane Lea studios has been operating for more than 70 years and was acquired by Warner Bros in 2012. Credits include Wonder Woman, Gravity, and the Harry Potter series. WBDLL is one of the first tenants of Soho Estate’s eye-catching Ilona Rose House building on Greek Street. Unusually for a post facility in London’s Soho, the WBDLL site was purpose-built in a new development, enabling the design to be planned from the outset.

The new site houses:
The UK’s largest mixing stage featuring a 4K DCI laser projection with Dolby Atmos and IMAX monitoring
An suite of 45 networked and acoustically treated cutting rooms with a programmable advanced lighting system
Three further mixing stages with 7.1.4 Dolby Atmos with laser projection
Two large DCI grading theatres including 7.1.4 Dolby Atmos monitoring and acoustically treated to the same standard as the mixing stages which enables seamless movement from mix to grade and vice versa
A purpose-built ADR environment with accompanying talent green room
Enhanced client spaces including a large café/bar, a dedicated video conference room and a private dining space

Kim Waugh, EVP Worldwide Post Production Creative Services, said: “This new home for our team of multi- award winning talent will bring another level of service to the post production world in London. The size and quality of the stages are exceptional, and I’m delighted we are remaining within the heart of Soho’s vibrant and creative community.”

The building is now open to clients, and all staff have now moved over from the Dean Street office. “Our rooms are already booked out for the foreseeable future, with a mixture of Warner Bros and non-Warner Bros projects,” explains Hamilton.
