Plaza Cinema

Located just a mile south of Purley, in the south of what is today part of Greater London. The Palladium Cinema opened on Easter Monday, 13th April 1914. It was closed on 26th February 1915, possibly due to conditions during World War I. It was later re-opened and was known as the Coulsdon Cinema. Closed again in 1922, it was re-opened in 1923.

Last known as the Plaza Cinema from 1927, it was closed for the final time in around 1931, and may have never been equipped for ‘talkies’, although it was still listed in the 1934 edition of Kine Yearbook as the Coulsdon Cinema.

The building later became a United Dairy’s depot, then a local greengrocer took over, followed in 1987 by Maxon Tiling, which by 2006, was Tile Base.
