The East Molesey & Hampton Court Picture Palace opened around 1912 and had a 22 feet wide proscenium. By 1930, it was operated by General Cinema Theatres Ltd. and underwent reconstruction to the plans of architect F. Bolton Trim in 1932 and it was re-named Court Cinema. The proscenium was widened to 30 feet.

Taken over by Town Theatres Ltd. in around 1939, and they were taken over by the Odeon Theatres Ltd. chain on 26th January 1942. It retained the name Court Cinema. Taken over by an independent operator on 3rd December 1951, the Court Cinema was closed on 8th November 1958 with Fernandel in "His Greatest Role"(Senechal le Magnifique) and Stanley Holloway in "Fast and Loose".

The building was converted into a warehouse, then later a printers workshop. It was demolished in around 1999, and housing was built on the site.
