Avenue Picture Palace

Located in the north London inner-city district of Clerkenwell, Islington. The Avenue Electric Theatre opened in 1911. It was located on the ground floor of a three storey factory building, with the auditorium running parallel to the avenue. The basement was used by the Munich Gerner Brewery, with the two upper floors used by metal workshops and the top floor by a printers.

The cinema space was designed by architects Francis Chambers & Son. Soon known as the Avenue Picture Palace, it catered to the local Italian community. It was closed in 1915, and the entire building went to industrial use.

In 2009, the building still stands, now entirely taken over for office use.
