haynesta commented about Coronet Cinema on Jan 12, 2021 at 8:15 am

From the Friends of Burgess Park: “The cinema boasted ‘the finest pictures in south London’ [and] played to packed houses from 1913. The Coronet was small yet grand but suffered bomb damage and later fire and was finally demolished in 1958. No remains have survived.”

The photograph and the location point do not match. We visited Sea Point in September 2019 and walked past the location point. There is clearly a former cinema here but it’s not the Adelphi shown in the pictures. According to Joe Voegel’s comment, the Adelphi was some 790m closer to the city centre along Main Road.

Just a small point but the marker on the map for this cinema is some distance from its actual location which is at the corner of Medlar Stree and Camberwell Road, SE5
