The Biograph Theatre was opened in 1911 and was operated by Biograph Theatres Ltd. It had seating on one level with no balcony.

It was located in the north London inner city district of Stoke Newington, a few doors to the north of the Three Crowns pub (currently known as Bar Lorca) on the corner of Stoke Newington High Street and Stoke Newington Church Street. There was a narrow alley which ran up along the right hand side of the building.

It was a short lived venture as it closed in 1919 and by 1924 it had been converted into a billiards hall.

Later in retail use for many years, it was eventually abandoned in the 1970’s and fell into disrepair. The roof collapsed, leaving only the four walls standing. In recent years some work has been carried out to make repairs to the building, with scaffolding supporting the structure. It was basically rebuilt and in 2008 contains housing, with the street level entrance in use as a Betfred betting shop.
