A 1930’s legendary grand cinema in the heart of Walthamstow, now stylishly restored into a pop up bar, restaurant in the large foyer featuring a cocktail bar in the old ticket booth (Mirth) and a multi arts venue/ club/ theatre in one of the Cinema rooms, where you can catch world class theatre, live music, cinema, club nights and comedy.

The events above are totally separate from Mirth( the main foyer) and will feature international talent. Most event will need a ticket. Head to our ticket page for more info.
Welcome to Mirth, our bar, restaurant in the the old foyer of the Granada Cinema. Entry to Mirth is ALWAYS FREE! – Come and sip a cocktail from our cocktail bar, set in the old ticket booth; dine out in our restaurant on the mezzanine; join our quiz, hang with mates, taste our fine beer and wine selection or dance the weekend nights away in the main bar.
Some 13 years after the EMD cinema closed to the public, and following a heroic rearguard action by the good folk of Walthamstow to save the building as a unique entertainment destination, we are delighted to have opened our restaurant, bar and cocktail bar in the gorgeous former foyer – MIRTH back in December 2015. Now, we are proud to introduce you to the the next stage of our restoration of this grand site, with the opening of our first old cinema room – MAUD. While the foyer and restaurant – MIRTH will always be free for you to wine, dine and enjoy our Quiz nights, Weekend DJs, cocktail bar, International Jazz Sundays, Roasts and Bloody Marys, MAUD will play host to Big Intimate music, theatre, film, spoken word and comedy alongside the great locals of the Waltham Forest.
