Other information:

Opened circa June 1910, and closed 1913. Also known as the Vaudeville, it had an L-shaped auditorium with a screen in the middle. The audience in the rear auditorium had to watch the film whilst looking in a mirror. Exists as the Charing Cross Post Office.

The marvellous domed ceiling stylistically pre-dates the cinema, but explains why the premises were chosen in the first place.
