I went here to see a double-bill of Russ Meyer films when I first moved to London to attend university. I was 19. I naively thought this place was an arthouse cinema. But then I noticed that the all-male customers kept changing seats throughout the film. One guy sat next to me and started feeling me up. The penny then dropped as to what kind of a cinema it actually was :)

This cinema (amongst others) was owned by my family business Jacey Cinemas Ltd. that no longer exists. Anyone interested in learning more can find my webpage devoted to the ‘History of the Jacey Group’ that included Jacey Cinemas, this was created by my late Grandfather Joseph Cohen (I am the last surviving Director) Please have a look at my website: –

Saw The Conformist, and Slackers here in the early 90’s…not a great experience but at the same time a testament to London offering the chance to see some classic films in theatres

Man, this place was an oddity. Can’t remember what i saw there, but I went a couple of times. the auditorium used to shake as the trains went past, and the auditoria were really narrow. Used to show some very weird stuff as well.

shot of the exterior taken yesterday, now as the Pigalle nightclub, the lobby and staircase ceiling plasterwork has been restored, nothing remains of the auditorium (on view at least)
