Originally a drill hall which was built in 1882, it was converted into a cinema in 1909, known as the Enfield Empire Cinema, it opened on 28th January 1910. By 1912, it was known as the Enfield Picture Theatre, and later that year it was re-named Cosy Cinema.

Closed for renovation and redecoration in August 1913, it re-opened as the Silver Cinema. It was closed in 1918, and was converted into a dance hall for a short period.

It was then taken over by the Enfield Gazette newspaper and used as a composing room for several decades. They had moved out by 1986, and the building was empty and unused. It was demolished (apart from the facade) and offices built on the site. In 2009, occupied by Beneficial Finances.
