Located in the Pimlico area. The Uptown Theatre was designed by architect John F. Eyring in an Art Moderne style. It opened on 27th June 1941 with Anna Neagle and John Carroll in “Sunny”.
Features of the building were the use of the then new ‘invisible light’ which today is known as ultra-violet lighting, that brought out hidden patterns in the fabric and decorative details of the auditorium. There were also four glass enclosed soundproof boxes which each seated eight persons, and were sold at a higher ticket price. All remaining seating was on a single floor.
It was still operating as a cinema in the early-1970’s but on a restricted opening schedule and closed in 1975.
Today the building is in use as the non-denominational Lords Church.
