The British Bioscope opened circa 1920 in District Six (now Zonnebloem) a suburb near Cape Town Central. The first talkie films were shown here in 1932. In later years it became the least sophisticated cinema in District Six. Along with the other cinemas in District Six, it closed and was demolished circa 1967, to comply with the then Government’s Group Area Act.

The exact location of the British Bioscope was on the corner of Caledon and (the now gone) Cannon Streets. The Cape Technikon now occupies the original site.
