Tatler Cinema

Located in Northwood, Middlesex, in the northwest of today’s Greater London. This small hall, with seating on a single level was opened in 1913 as the 425-seat Northwood Picture House. It was soon re-named Ritz Cinema, then Northwood Cinema, then in May 1921 Playhouse. By April 1932, it was operated by Alfred Dove of Barnes. In July 1934, it was re-named Tatler Cinema. It was listed as closed in 1940, possibly due to war time conditions and it never re-opened. It was converted into a war-time British Restaurant in 1942. In 1954, it was purchased by the local council.

In 2008, the building was in use as the Northwood Dining Club, catering for old folks. It had been demolished by 2013, and flats & shops built on the site.

I’m not sure the dates are entirely correct.
I can vaguely remember going in there as a very young child to see the Disney film, “Make Mine Music” and I wasn’t born until 1950.
My mum, and all the locals, always referred to it is The Ritz, but I think it had been renamed many years before.

The building wasn’t demolished in 2013 either. I went to what was Jones' fish shop next door about 3 years ago (2017) and it was still there then.
