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 & 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.
