Opened 17 December 1934 and closed 18 July 1970. The Town and Country Club during the 1980s, survived a redevelopment plan in 1992 but closed March 1993. Later that year Mean Fiddler took on the lease with films of a musical nature returning to the former cinema in 1995 under the Silver Screen Cinema Club banner. The MAMA group took over the lease in 2007 and refurbished the building in 2009 when it became known as the HMV Forum. The current operator is Live Nation, part of the Academy Music Group, which has rebranded the venue the O2 Forum.

There are plans for films to return to The Forum in the near future when the venue is not booked for concerts.

The family resemblance with the former Ealing Forum/ABC/Virgin/UGC is amazing. The Ealing version was tripled some years ago, but is currently being demolished. There were stories doing the rounds that a multiplex is going to replace it – utilising the former frontage – but we must wait and see.
