Plaque

(lost) Coronet Cinema - Camberwell

Inscription

The Coronet Cinema boasted the 'finest pictures in south London' from 1913. In that pre-digital age, long before television, 'gong to the flicks' was hugely popular. Opening as Camberwell Central Cinema, it was small, yet grand. Suffering bomb damage and later fire, it was finally demolished in 1958. No remains survive.
