Built on the site of the Classic Cinema 1937-1973 (which was also the head offices of Classic Repertory Cinemas), this replacement cinema opened on 2nd March 1978 as the Sherlock Holmes Centa 1 & 2 and is located in the basement of the new building. It was operated by the CineCenta group of art house cinemas. Originally the seating capacities were for 123 & 117. From December 1979 it was operated by Star Cinemas and it closed on 7th September 1983 with Ben Kingsley in “Ghandi” and Dustin Hoffman in “Tootsie”.

It was taken over by independent exhibitor Romaine Hart and added to her ‘Screen on….'cinemas after being gutted and redesigned. It re-opened as the Screen on Baker Street on 3rd February 1984 with Linda Griffiths in “Lianna” in the 95 seat Number 1 cinema and “James Stewart in "Rear Window” in the 100 seat number 2 screen.
