Phoenix Cinema

The Phoenix Cinema in East Finchley has a long and historied past- going back over 100 years!

Starting it’s life as the East Finchley Picturedrome, the building works started in 1910 and were completed in 1912; It is now one of the UK’s oldest continuously-running cinemas. After successive name and management changes, in 1975 the cinema was renamed The Phoenix Cinema, along with a shift of focus to bring contemporary, independent, foreign and art-house films to the community.
