Previous Names: Coronation Hall, Coronation Cinema, Roxy Cinema
Located in Surbiton, in the south of today’s Greater London. The Coronation Hall opened as a purpose-built cinema on 21st June 1911. The facade has a central pediment, with a round window below, which is framed by a decorative feature. It is flanked on each side by an octagonal tower feature.
Inside the foyer there was paneled oak on the walls, and the auditorium was decorated with floral motifs on fibrous plaster in bold relief on the beams of the barrel vaulted ceiling. In 1912, a cafe was added to the facilities at the cinema. It became the Coronation Cinema in 1919.
It was re-named Roxy Cinema in 1947, then became the Ritz Cinema in 1955. The Ritz Cinema, together with the still operating cafe, was closed on 17th May 1966 with Sandra Dee in "I’d Rather Be Rich" and Cary Grant in "Operation Petticoat".
It was converted into an independent bingo club, which operated for the following 27 years. In 1993, it was converted into a naturist (nudist) health club, which operated until 1966. The pub chain J.D. Wetherspoon took over in 1997, and converted it into one of their pubs, opening on 18th September 1997 as the Coronation Hall.
