Star Kinema

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Located in the southwest London district of Fulham. The Star Kinema opened on 22nd December 1913. It was an attractive building, faced in white Portland stone, and had four Ionic pillars on its facade, behind which was an open balcony. Inside the auditorium there was a 25 feet wide proscenium.

The Star Kinema was independently operated until later years, when it became part of the Southan Morris chain. It was taken over by Essoldo Cinemas chain on 24 August 1954, and was closed on 4th February 1956 with Brian Keith in "Chicago Syndicate" and Guy Madison in "5 Against the House". It stood empty for several years and was demolished in 1961.

A new building on the site houses retail on the ground floor (occupied in 2008 by a branch of ABC Pharmacy, which was a Day Lewis Pharmacy in 2012), with flats above.
