Located on the corner of Malden Road and Wellesby Place in the Lower Belsize Park district of Hampstead, north-west London. The Gem Picture Hall opened in December 1909. In 1919 it was re-named Doric Picture Theatre, and was re-named Malden Picture House in 1922.

Later in 1922, it was renamed Court Picture Theatre. The independent M & J Cinemas took over in around 1937/1938 and it was re-named Court Cinema. The proscenium was only 15 feet wide. It was never fitted with Cinemascope and was closed on 19th April 1958 with Lawrence Harvey in "The Silent Enemy" and Buster Crabbe in "The Lawless Eighties".

The building was demolished and a petrol station, known as the Court Service Station was built on the site, and still operates in 2009.
