Description

The Grosvenor Cinema opened in 1936. It was taken over by Odeon in 1937 and was known as the Gaumont Cinema between 1950 and 1964. After closing as a cinema in 1986, the building became a bar and nightclub, and later a religious venue. Interior and exterior features were retained during the different uses of the building, including the triple-bowed projecting front and the foyer.
