• Built in 1910, the cinema finally opened in 1912 as The East Finchley

Picturedrome, part of the first wave of cinema building happening

across the UK in the early 1900s.

• The 1909 Cinematograph Act introduced laws to make cinemas safer. As

a result, more purpose-built cinemas began to appear, including this

one. It was built by Premier Electric Theatres in 1910 on what was

considered an excellent site, with electric trams running past and the

station nearby.

• However, the company went bankrupt before the cinema could open. In

1912, the building was purchased by businessmen who had been

involved in setting up East Sheen Picturedrome.

• The cinema finally opened as The East Finchley Picturedrome in May

1912 with a film about the tragic Titanic ocean liner which had recently

sunk. At its opening it looked very different to today with a façade of

towers and domes. Inside, there was a café on the 1st floor, which has

recently been reinstated. In the auditorium, there was an orchestra pit

and twice the number of seats as today.


• A four-screen cinema venue showing over 2,000 classic

hours, for an average class size, includes a brief

introduction. A facilitated session, with an

introduction by a curator around a specific theme can

be organised for a fee.


• A unique experience, Everyman Cinemas is an independent network of

boutique cinemas. With a passion for quality, from service of food and drink

to seating and films, every cinema also has a unique bar or foyer space.

Roman Polanski once remarked that “Cinema should make you forget you

are sitting in a theatre”, our cinemas do just that, they create a truly

memorable experience that exceeds expectations and reaches the highest

standards possible in comfort and entertainment.

• Everyman is one of the fastest growing independent networks in the UK

and will be expanding into numerous new sites over the next two years,

such as Esher and Gerrards Cross. Present venues range from the iconic

100 year old Screen on the Green, to brand new boutique spaces in Canary

Wharf and Birmingham Mailbox.

• Current locations: Belsize Park, Hampstead, Maida Vale, Islington, Baker

Street, Canary Wharf, Leeds, Walton-on-Thames, Winchester, Oxted,

Reigate and Birmingham.

• The cinemas owned by the Group are operated under the ‘Everyman’ brand,

spearheading the revival of independent cinema in the UK.

• A bastion of world cinema that conceals a palatial

Screen One, with its two luxurious Royal Boxes and

the intimate Screen Two. Since 1934, Mayfair has been

the heart of Curzon Cinemas with a rich cinematic

history and a dedicated audience of film enthusiasts.

• Disabled access is provided on entrance to the building

via a stair lift, and directly into screen one via another

dedicated lift. There is no disabled access to screen

two, which is up two flights of stairs. The stair lift is

subject to weight restrictions and is unsuitable for

powered wheelchairs.


• The Rio is an independent Art Deco picture palace in Dalston, Hackney. We show a

mixture of arthouse and mainstream films, all programmed by the in-house team and

shown on our single, full-sized silver screen.

• Our building is Grade II listed by English Heritage, who admire the 'sweeping curves' of

the Rio's 1930s auditorium. To add to the traditional cinema experience, we have plush

red velvet seats, atmospheric music before the show, and long red curtains that swish

back before the film starts.

• We usually show one or two main feature films each week, plus late shows at the

weekend, kids' screenings, Parent & Baby screenings and the popular Classic Matinees

for the over 60s. We're a key venue for several film festivals, and home to the London

Turkish Film Festival. We also host special events from the likes of Cigarette Burns

Cinema and Amy Grimehouse. There's a stage in our auditorium, too, which means we

can put on theatre, music, talks and cabaret.

• The Rio is run as a charity and we're very proud to be a community cinema. We

encourage local people to get involved by running affordable screenings for children and

the over 60s, and a regular programme of educational school screenings. Local people can

hire the cinema for educational, campaigning or fundraising events.

• The Rio has a Board of Directors who are a group of local people elected each year to help

set our policy and oversee the running of the cinema and charity.


• The former Salvation Army Hall (Music Palace) in Crouch End, North

London has been transformed into a dynamic new cultural venue that

will tear down the perceived fourth wall between genres of Art that

currently exist in isolation, confined to their own specific buildings. By

challenging the status quo that divides our cultural landscape, we hope

to attract a mixed audience where class, race, gender, sexuality and

religion can be celebrated and discussed in an open minded, creative

atmosphere. We aim to develop new and classic works that reflect the

multi-cultural and multi-faceted nature of city life. We are committed to

collaborating with actors, writers, directors, filmmakers and investors

from the vast array of diversity that reflect our lives and our


• By mixing the world of film, fine art, live music, discussion groups,

theatre, live streaming, workshops, dance, comedy and whatever else

that inspires, we strive to create a unique hub in North London for both

Artists to feel at home in and lovers of art to be thoroughly entertained



• We are part of the Institut français worldwide network

promoting French language and culture and encouraging

cross-cultural exchange and cultural diversity.

• Founded in 1910, the Institut français du Royaume-Uni,

today directed by François Croquette, comprises a

language centre, multi-media library, a cinema – Ciné

lumière – and a French bistro, and welcomes 200,000

people each year.

• At the heart of the Institut français’ mission is the

teaching of the French language. The language centre,

which attracts 7000 students every year, offers

traditional language courses as well as business French

and courses on various aspects of French culture and

current affairs. The Institut also collaborates with schools

in the UK on educational cooperation programmes to

promote French language learning and organise teacher

training, so that French can remain the UK’s top choice

for foreign language study.


• The Prince Charles Cinema has existed in its current

incarnation since 1991 (in previous lives it was a West End

Theatre and a film-house of ill repute!).

• The only non subsidised repertory cinema in the UK, we do not

receive funding from the Arts Council, the Lottery or any other

body. We act independently in our dealings with all film

distribution companies. We have operated our low ticket pricing

policies since 1991 and have a loyal base of regular customers.

The PCC community!

• We recently completed a major refurbishment of the building,

adding in a second screen in the upper levels of the cinema.

This has enabled us to continue showing our great value classic

cinema downstairs, whilst also branching out into showing

brand new premium films upstairs.

• From cult festivals to the latest box office hits, the Prince

Charles Cinema is the heart of independent film in London.
