Located in the east London inner city district of Dalston. In 1909, Clara Ludski opened the Kingsland Palace in a former auctioneers shop at 107 Kingsland High Street. Seating was provided for 180.

It was so successful, that in 1910, she took over the premises next door at number 105, and enlarged the cinema to seat 360. It was now named the Kingsland Palace of Animated Pictures. In 1915, the building was demolished, to enable the purpose built Kingsland Empire to be erected on the site.

The new cinema was designed by architects Percy C. Adams & George Coles, and with modifications in 1936 by architect Frederick E. Bromige, it continues today as the popular Rio Cinema.
