NOTES: Situated two storeys below street level in the Rex House redevelopment, this cinema was forced to close in late November 1939 following the outbreak of World War II. In September 1940 it was requisitioned by the Office of Works and never functioned as a public cinema again. It was converted into a theatre by the BBC for radio broadcasts and was known as the Paris Theatre. It closed in 1995.
