Located in the inner north London district of Holloway. Opened as the Holloway Grand Pictures on 8th January 1913, it was designed by architect George D. Duckworth of Wood Green.

Intitially an independent cinema, it passed to the Ben Jay circuit when it became the Regent Cinema in 1935. In 1950 it was re-named Century Cinema and in 1955 it underwent an extensive re-furbishment when it was purchased by the Essoldo Circuit and re-named Essoldo Cinema.

However it was served a Compulsory Purchase Order and closed on 29th April 1961 with Dana Andrews in “Madison Avenue” and Jimmie Rodgers in “The Little Shepherd of Kingdom Come”.

It was demolished and an extension to the Polytechnic College of North London was built on the site.
