Located opposite the British Museum Underground station (which is no longer operating). The Holborn Cinema was opened on 15th October 1910, and was designed for the Holborn Cinema Company by architect F.W. Foster of architectural firm Foster & Gill of Bedford Row, London. There were 320-tip-up seats in the stalls and there were two balconies, each seating 76-seats. There was a tea lounge upstairs on the first floor.
Alterations were carried out by noted architect Frank T. Verity in September 1923, and it was re-named Embassy Cinema. Live variety shows then supported the main film.
The Embassy Cinema was closed in 1925 and became a small manufacturing premises, used for making metal casements. In later years it became a branch of the Midland Bank, with offices above. In 2008, it operates as a branch of HSBC Bank.
