Located in the west London inner-city district of Notting Hill. Opened as the Coronet Theatre (a playhouse) in 1898 with 1,143 seats located in stalls, balcony and gallery. It went over to screening films full time in 1923. In 1931 it was taken over by Gaumont British Theatres/Provincial Cinematograph Theatres(PCT) and re-opened on 17th August 1931 with 1,010 seats.
It was re-named Gaumont Theatre in 1950 and continued through to 1977 playing the Gaumont and Rank releases. It was taken over by the independent operator Panton Films from 27th February 1977 and re-named Coronet Cinema, with a reduced seating capacity of 399, using the stalls and balcony seating areas only.
Today, the main original auditorium is virtually intact, however a second screen with 151 seats was erected on the stage in 2002. The main original auditorium now has a seating capacity of 380, with 220 in the stalls and 160 in the balcony(the gallery is unused). In May 2004 it was purchased by a church, but it remains open as a cinema. It is a Grade II Listed building.
