The Biograph Theatre was opened in September 1909. It was one of a chain of five Biograph Theatre’s in London, which were operated by an American named George Washington Grant, the most famous one being the Biograph Theatre in Victoria. Initially seating at Clapham Junction was provided for 532.

By February 1912, the seating capacity had been increased to 700, and a sliding roof had been installed, to be used during hot summer nights.

The Biograph Theatre was closed by 1917, and it was demolished in the early 1920’s, and a F.W. Woolworth store was built on the site. In 2009, a Superdrug store and other retail units are on the site.
