Located in the southeast London district of Woolwich, close to the Woolwich Arsenal. The Cinema opened on 20th October 1913 with 650 seats, and it was operated by the Arsenal Cinema Co. It was equipped with four dressing rooms for artistes who may have appeared on the 8 foot deep stage. The proscenium was 24 feet wide.
In the early-1930’s, it was expanded to seat 900, and was operated by the small local Selwyn Cinema circuit. By 1937 it was operated by the London & District Cinemas Ltd. chain. The Cinema was taken over by the Granada Theatres chain in November 1952, and in September 1953, it was re-named Century Cinema.
The Century Cinema was closed on 27th May 1961 with Pat Boone in "All Hands on Deck" and Lex Barker in “The Deerslayer”. It then stood empty and unused until it was demolished in late-1968. A supermarket was built on the site, in 2010 this is operated by Iceland.
