Brighton Cinema

Located between two railway bridge spans, opposite Battersea Park Railway Station on Battersea Park Road. This small venue was operating as Punland with penny slot machines and it began screening films from March 1909.

It was closed temporarily in December 1909, so that structural alterations could be carried out to comply with the new Cinematograph Licencing Act which was introduced by the Government. It re-opened in early 1910 as the Brighton Cinema.

The cinema was actually in a row of five shops units facing the railway station (in 2009, only one of these still exists). The cinema came under new ownership in 1916 and was re-named Battersea Electric Palace, but it closed in around 1917.

By 2021 a new building containing a Sainsbury’s Local supermarket stands on the site.
