Located in Southend-on-Sea, Essex on the sea front, in the Luna Park & Palace amusement park. The Luna Park Palace was built in 1902, and began screening films in the ballroom in 1904. The amusement park was later re-named Kursaal.
A new hall was built in 1910, and it became the Kursaal Kinema in mid-October 1913. It had a 25 feet wide proscenium and a small stage. It was closed during World War I when the Kursaal amusement park was used by the army, and it reopened in 1920 after a refurbishment.
It was renamed Kursaal Cinema around 1938 and was closed in July 1940. It was listed as (Closed) in 1944. It never re-opened as a cinema and later became the Estuary Room, used for social events. By the late-1970’s, the amusement park was very run down and parts of it were derelict and abandoned.
