Located in Clerkenwell on the edge of the City of London. The Cineroleum is located in an abandoned petrol filling station forecourt. It opened on 20th August 2010 with James Dean in “Rebel Without a Cause”, and has seating on stepped bleachers. The cinema utilises the already existing flat roof of the forecourt, and when the performance commences a festoon curtain is lowered on all four sides, enclosing the seating area.

This venture is proving popular, with sold out performances of classic films. It will however be a temporary venture, and will close when the site comes up for redevelopment, or maybe earlier as the colder weather comes in.

The latter part of the name comes from the word petroleum, as the building was originally a petrol station (US= gas station selling gasoline)
