Located at the junction of Corner Street, St. Stephen’s Road and Roman Road in Old Ford, an east London neighborhood. The Old Ford Picture Palace opened on 16th November 1910. It had a 32 feet wide proscenium. In 1937, it was re-named Ritz Cinema.
After Cinemascope was installed in the mid-1950’s, the seating capacity was reduced to 440. Programming old films, the Ritz Cinema was closed on 16th June 1961, with the 1955 film "The Road to Denver" starring John Payne.
It was converted into a bingo club, but this was not to last long as the building was destroyed by a fire one month later on 8th July 1961. The remains were demolished and housing has been built on the site.
