Previous Names: Sweetingham's Bioscope, Sweetingham's Cinematograph Hall
Operated by W. Sweetingham, his Canning Town Bioscope opened in December 1909 after the closure of his Barking Road property. It opened with a seating capacity of 400. It was taken over by Gales by 1912 and they employed architects Emden & Egan to enlarge the cinema. Further alterations were carried out in 1919, when Sweetingham’s had re-taken the operation of the cinema.
By 1921, it was known as the Rathbone Cinema with 1,000 seats. The Rathbone Cinema was closed in 1930, probably never being equipped for sound films. It was demolished and today, housing is on the site.
