Located in the north London inner city district of Stoke Newington. Opened in 1913, the Albion Cinema was a small neighborhood independent cinema. The entrance was through one of the units of a parade of shops with flats above. The auditorium is totally hidden from view on Albion Road, but can be seen at the rear of the parade when viewed from Clissold Road.

It closed in 1952, never being equipped for widescreen presentation.

In 2007 the entrance in the parade was in use as a Ladbroke’s betting office and the auditorium at the rear is in use as a religious school and community centre. By April 2012 Ladbroke’s had moved out and the entrance on the parade had been in temporary use as a pop-up art gallery.

I have very fond memories of the loud projector it gave a pleasant continuous humming sound all through the films a sound I wish they would attach to all DVD players.

In 1929 my father, Norman Henry Mills, was running this cinema for his father, Harry. They also had the Central Hall Picture Palace in South Norwood
