Located in Hampstead, north London. The building was built in 1888 as a community centre and assembly room. It was known as Hampstead Drill Hall, as it was the base for the volunteer Hampstead Reginment. Films were screened in the basement in the early years. It opened as the Everyman Theatre on 15th November 1920 presenting plays by new playwrights.

The Everyman Cinema opened on 26th December 1933 with Rene Cair’s “Le Million”. In recent years a second screen has been added.

EVERYMAN trivia, a bit dated….

the theatre is mentioned by name in the first line on the lyric to HAMPSTEAD INCIDENT, the closing song off of the popular MELLOW YELLOW album by DONOVAN, circa late 1966 – early ‘67.

I seem to remember a regular Marx Brothers mini-season each year in the 1960’s, I think. I went to a couple and the place was packed! As was a film with G B Shaw that my mum took me to in the late 50’s. He was chatting away in his, or somebody’s, back garden. I was probably too young to appreciate the “wit”, but I wonder what film it was…
