Originally built in 1837 as an Advocates Library and Hall. Designed by Architect John Smith in a Classical style, the building dominates a busy corner on at 120 Union Street and Back Wynd.
In 1913 it was converted into the Queen’s Cinema with a seating capacity of 580 in stalls and circle levels. At some time, the auditorium was given an Art Deco style treatment. The Queen’s Cinema closed in 1981 and the building later became a nightclub known as De Niro’s, today known as Espionage which covers 3-floors upstairs. The foyer is in retail use.
On 12th January 1967, Historic Scotland designated the Queen’s Cinema a Grade B Listed building.
