The Town Hall Kinema was opened in 1931. Located in the newly built Wimbledon Town Hall building, which was designed by the architectural firm Bradshaw Gass & Hope. Located on the corner of Queen’s Road and Wimbledon Bridge, it was faced in red brick and white Portland stone.

The Kinema was equipped with a Compton 3Manual/13Ranks organ which was opened by organists Henry Coleman and Phillip Dore. The proscenium was 35 feet wide, the stage 35 feet deep and there were six dressing rooms. The hall was also used for civic functions.

The Town Hall Kinema stopped screening films in 1946, and went over to civic functions and special events. It was later demolished except for parts of the facade, and a new shopping centre was built and opened in 1992, which includes the Centre Court Leisure Centre on the site of the Kinema.
