Archival footage: filmed when it was called the Scene, at 0:20 in this sequence. The marquee catches the eye but titles of the films played also visible at the very top of the frame.

Lionel: The Swiss Centre opened in 1966, so it seems reasonable to assume that the cinema was not conceived at that time?

BTW, thanks CF100 for posting this link. I really wonder how they could come up with such dreadful theatres. After all, they were free to do whatever they wanted from the start. Just like the 4-plex on Panton Street in which I’ve seen one film and recently saw the plans here on CinemaTreasures. Why choose from the beginning to have such cramped places with tiny screens when volume allows to do better? Ah…

Lionel: Afraid I don’t. However, you can view the plans for the cinema within this licencing application.

Hello. I’m desperately looking for pictures showing the inside of these theatres. Does somebody have some? Thank you.

A dreadful little multiplex originally known as the Scene Swiss Centre….little or no money has been spent on its upkeep over the years and although capacity in the West End will be reduced(a long with the impending closure of the Odeon West End)its loss is not to be mourned!
