Clarence Cinema

Located in Lower Clapton in the east London inner city Borough of Hackney on the corner of Clarence Road and Dalston Lane, opposite the northern end of Mare Street. The Hackney Electric Theatre was opened in late-1910 by Universal Picture Theatres Ltd. In 1918, it was renamed New Clarence Cinema. Later known as the Clarence Cinema, it was closed in 1924. The building was converted into a shop.

In the 1990’s, the building had been converted into offices used by a housing association. Around 2001, it was converted into flats. In 2008, the ground floor front of the building was in use as a betting shop known as Better Bet then Paddy Power.
