Coronet Theatre History

Current premises : The Coronet first opened as a theatre in 1898 with a capacity of 1,143 seats.

It was designed by one of leading architects of the time W.G.R. Sprague – his other work included Wyndhamís Theatre, Aldwych Theatre, Noel Coward Theatre – at a cost of £25,000. It quickly gained a reputation for being one of the finest theatres outside the West End, with appearances from actors including Ellen Terry and Sarah Bernhardt and was frequented by King Edward VII.

Though film screenings at the Coronet began in 1916, it didnít become a full time cinema until 1923. Throughout the war, in addition to showing morale-boosting motion pictures, it acted as a bomb shelter for the local area.

Between 1950 and 1977 it was named the Gaumont Theatre after its owners Gaumont-British Cinemas, until, after a period where it looked like the cinema might close, it was bought by the independent operator Panton Films who chose to return the name to The Coronet Cinema and refurbish the seating, decreasing the capacity to 400.

In 2002 a second 150 seat screen was installed and it has functioned as a two screen cinema for 12 years.
In 2014, the Print Room theatre took over the premises, and is currently in the process of refurbishing the entire building back to its former glory.

It was renamed as the Coronet Theatre in 2019.
