Short film showing the building, the projection booth and the screen, made in the late nineties:

One movie I watched here in ‘87 was “84 Charing Cross Road”, the cinema being just around the corner from the titular address.

Hi Ian, in 1998 the whole site including flats and shops were sold off by Chesterfield Properties, owners of the Curzon chain to a property company. The Phoenix Theatre as part of this sale was then leased to Ambassador Theatre Group. As a result an independent cinema was not viable on such a prime site and being no longer controlled by Curzon closed at once.

I absolutely adored this little cinema.
A really great place to see a movie with great presentation and always a well behaved audience.
I’ve always wondered why a building barely 11 years old closed so suddenly? Any ideas?
