Located in Swanley, Kent, just outside of the London Borough of Bromley, at the corner of London Road and St. Mary’s Road. The Corona Cinema was opened on 6th October 1938 with Robert Taylor in “A Yank at Oxford”. It was designed by architectural firm Sykes & Pomfret of Eltham. It was equipped with a Compton 2 Manual theatrone organ, which was opened by organist Reginald New. The proscenium was 40 feet wide, and the stage 13 feet deep.

Always independently operated, the Corona Cinema was closed on 22nd November 1965 with “Scorching Sands” and “Hell Below Deck”. It was eventually demolished, and a new civic centre and library were built on the site.
