Located in Sevenoaks, Kent. This replaced a previous Cinema Electric Theatre on the same site. Opened on the 4th November 1935, it was the first cinema to be designed by architect David Evelyn Nye and included a café. It was equipped with a 2Manual/5Ranks Compton organ which had an illuminated console on a lift. It was briefly taken on by Lou Morris in April 1937 but was with Cohen and Rafer in June 1937. The name Plaza Cinema was used by Morris.

From July 1947 it was taken over by the Granada Theatres chain and was re-named Granada 28th November 1948. The Granada closed on 22nd October 1960 with Sylvia Sims in “No Trees in the Street”. It was demolished to make way for a newly constructed Pembroke Road.
