Acme Warehouse gets a new lease on life    (see post on ‘ACME Warehouse, from April 7, 2018)


The map (below) shows the Shepherd’s Bush area of London in 1841, with the London Railway line.

In 1898, The Dimco Buildings were constructed in White City, just north of Shepherd’s Bush, as a shed for the Central line London Underground power station.  They were used for the location filming of the Acme Warehouse in Who framed Roger Rabbit, and they later served as the interior of the British Museum in The Mummy Returns.


The Dimco Buildings currently house the White City bus station, located next to the Westfield London shopping centre, one of the largest in Europe.  That is soon going to change.  They are going to be converted into a new venue for live music events, exhibitions, award ceremonies, and more.  The venue will be called, ‘Exhibition.’  It will provide two floors with 34,000 square feet of exhibition space.  It will be operated by Broadwick Venues, which opened Printworks, London’s largest nightclub, in 2017 and is also affiliated with London festivals ‘Field Day’ and South West Four.’  Work on converting the Dimco buildings to their new use will begin in February – and Exhibition is to be launched towards the end of 2019.
