UNDERWATER STAGE - PINEWOOD STUDIOS
Designed by Dave Shaw and built in 2004, and now home to Diving Services UK, The Underwater Stage at Pinewood Studios was the world’s first, studio based, permanently filled underwater stage. It contains 1,200,000 litres of warm (32’C) water. It is 20 meters long, 10 meters wide and 6 meters deep, has 3 viewing windows, 60 wall fixing points and two structure steels in the floor for securing underwater sets and special effects rigs. The Underwater Stage is on two levels with a production office, makeup and wardrobe rooms, and a workshop downstairs, and changing rooms and a first aid room at pool level upstairs.
