This cinema was rebranded as the Belmont Filmhouse – a sister to the Edinburgh Filmhouse – after being sold to Centre for the Moving Image in April 2014, as Cineworld’s purchase of Picturehouse created limited competition in the area.

A repertory, smoker-friendly cinema named Cinema Fumée opened here on 5th August 1994 for a year; the last that was heard of it was its role in a Placebo tour in ‘95. It reopened for a very limited time at Shepherd’s Bush Empire in 1998. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UWD0Ol32kcw http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/a-light-in-the-dark-for-smokers-1381966.html

I’ve been on a trip to Japan this year and will post photos if ever I find them. For some reason I couldn’t add the website, so here it is: http://wald9.com
