Dean Cinema

In the Stockbridge suburb of Edinburgh, to the north west of the city centre, the Dean Picture House opened on 5th February 1917, a conversion of a former church.

It was briefly renamed Pavilion Cinema in early-1930, although the Kinematograph Year Book for 1931 still listed it as the Pavilion Cinema, owned by J.W. Caithness, and advertised ‘Pictures and Variety’ utilising a 12ft deep stage. It had been taken over by a new operator and renamed Dean Cinema in May 1930.

The Dean Cinema was equipped with a British Acoustic(BA) sound system, and was closed in 1936.

By the time I visited, in March 2006, the building had been converted into offices.
