The planning application for the new development has been refused and appealed so this cinema will be with us for a while yet.

The repaint is just that – a repaint! Still with all the Virgin/UGC style signage and colours, and Cineworld purple carpet.

Interesting to hear – when I went just last month it was still very much stuck in the Virgin/UGC days of the late 1990s.

Still open as of February 2014 and seemingly no sign of closure.

Evening Standard reports (December 12 2012) that the cinema is to be demolished and replaced by a new 4-screen Everyman cinema, opening in 2015. So one of London’s oldest cinema buildings is to go..

A serviceable neighborhood theatre…the upstairs screen number 3 is probably the most comfortable…Have seen a wide range of pictures here over the years including The Prince of Tides, High Heels, In and Out, The Edge, Fight Club, Traffic, What Women Want, Bofinger, There’s Something About Mary and The Matrix

The scary part is that in my 15 years in London this and the Fulham Rd theatre among a couple of others have been rebranded 5 times from Cannon to MGM to Virgin to UGC and now to Cineworld…How is the customer supposed to develop any sort of allegiance?
