Walden Cinema

In Saffron Walden, Essex, Ernest Smith built the Saffron Walden Cinema, which opened in 1912. It originally used rear projection but, after World War I, the cinema was extensively refurbished, and a more conventional projection system was installed. At the same time, the auditorium was ‘turned around’, and a sloping floor was installed.

By 1921 the cinema was owned by the Tozer and Linsell Circuit. By 1935 it had become known as the Walden Cinema.

It was completely destroyed by fire in August 1950. Once the site had been cleared a new Walden Cinema (see separate Cinema Treasures entry) was constructed.
