Whilst looking for other material on the newly-updated RIBA website recently, I hope I’ve discovered the epitome of the CinemaTreasures theme of capturing the juxtaposition of the modern and the glorious:

The Trocadero Cinema, like the 4004 seat Gaumont State Theatre, Kilburn, London were projects of the Hyams and Gale circuit which were taken over by Gaumont British Cinemas.

The Trocadero was taken over in October 1935 by Gaumont Super Cinemas. The seating capacity of the Trocadero was 3,500 and it was one of the most lavish ‘movie palaces’ ever built in the UK and was on the same scale as a Thomas Lamb, or Rapp & Rapp theatre in the USA.
