Unfavorite No one has favorited this theater yet

Located in Caterham, Surrey, now the southernmost part of today’s Greater London. The Electric Cinema was adjacent to the still existing Blacksmith’s Arms pub. It was opened in 1909 by a Mr. Freeman and was a conversion of a former coach builders premises. The silent films were accompanied by a horn gramophone. It is not known how long the Electric Cinema lasted.

It has since been demolished and in 2020 a building housing EES Facilities (an electrical maintenance company) now operates on the site.
