There are some pictures here http://www.flickr.com/photos/59082098@N05/sets/72157626005885698/ taken in the 1930’s when the building was new.

I wish I hadn’t looked at the photo! What a sad demise of a lovely art deco building. I lived in Finchley Park, just round the corner, and was a regular visitor in the 1950’s and early 1960’s. They weren’t doing that badly – the place was jam-packed for Summer Holiday and Zulu, but of course, TV was gaining ground and perhaps closure was inevitable. But to replace it with “Furnitureland” – just how gross can things get!

It would be nice to some pictures of this cinema in it’s prime – maybe with some trolleybuses, buses, or Greenlines that all stopped outside the entrance.
