Venus Cinema

Located in the northwest London inner-city district of Kentish Town. The Venus Cinema opened in June/July 1970. It was located on the ground floor of a modern church hall building, at the rear of St. Andrew’s Greek Orthodox Church which is at 122 Kentish Town Road.

It screened a mix of mainstream films and independent films, but did not prove a success, possibly due to its rather spartan conditions inside, which made it rather uncomforable. In the summer of 1971, it was taken over by Contemporary Films, who operated the Paris Pullman Cinema in Kensington, and it began to programme first run off-beat films.

The Venus Cinema was closed in around 1975 and is now in use as St. Andrew’s Church Hall.

This brought back memories of having to rush over from marble arch Odeon to show the films when they had no permanent projectionist. They must have had the smallest projection rooms on the planet
