The Coronet Theatre was a large live music and night-club venue in London, England, famed for it’s art deco features and also for being one of the few buildings in the area that stood strong during the Blitz. It was even used as a shelter!

The Coronet has unfortunately been shut down for a few years now, but it is still fondly remembered as a great venue for cinema and music. It was a cinema since the 50s, and In the 1950s, the cinema made headlines when the manager exhibited the Bill Haley & His Comets movie Rock Around the Clock and the youthful audience ran riot – definitely a cool place to be! 

Some of the classic movies to be shown there include “Eyes Wide Shut”, “The 13th Warrior” and “Never Been Kissed”.

The Coronet Theatre closed with an all night party on 31st December 2017/1st January 2018 – what a night that must have been, and what an incredible cinema venue this place was. It will be sorely missed!
