Located in the east London district of Silvertown, today known as North Woolwich. Sweetingham’s Cinema opened in 1912. Later known as the Silvertown Picture Palace, it finally became the Albert Cinema and was closed in 1938.

Due to its close proximity to the London Docks, it was most likely damaged or destroyed by German bombs, when the area was devastated during World War II.

Hi, I don’t think the Google map image is correct. The address of the cinema is noted elsewhere as 60 Albert Road, London, E16. I think Google maps this incorrectly, as the numbers on this road are not equidistant and there are few remaining buildings with addresses directly on Albert Road. The location Google is showing above is approx 206 Albert Road. The cinema address marking should be further west. There is a doctors surgery at 76 Albert Road so the site of the former cinema would be further west still, closer to the former Silvertown rail station, I think.

There are a number of photographs of Albert Road Silvertown from around the period of the cinema’s existence on this website here

The geography of Albert Road means that some properties are not easily visible, but the link might provide some useful information regarding the locality.
