Built like an Egyptian Mar 20, 2017
A number of former cinemas in London have been renovated and re-used as venues for religious meetings or other purposes. The old Coronet Cinema in Notting Hill Gate is a fine example of this. For years, it was a cinema, then it became a church meeting hall as well as a cinema, and now it is a theatre again (it was originally built as a theatre befor it became a cinema!).

The facade of Gracepoint on Essex Road is a fine example of art-deco neo-Egyptian architecture. Built in the 1920s, designed by the architect George COLES, it was formerly the Carlton Cinema. After being abandoned for a while, it has been fully restored and is used both as a religious meeting place and a 'venue' for hiring. I was not able to enter, but I have seen photos of the interior, which has been restored to its former glory.

Worth stopping to look at!
