The 1930’s built former Granada Cinema Walthamstow has provided entertainment and culture to local people on the site for well over a century.
Over the years the venue, as still the Granada Cinema would play host to such entertainment legends as The Beatles, Johnny Cash, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Jerry Lee Lewis, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, Little Richard, Gene Vincent, John Coltrane, The Walker Brothers, The Who, Chuck Berry, Buddy Holly and Roy Orbison.
The original Victoria Hall opened during May 1887 to provide a venue for dances, concerts, meetings and plays. The site’s long association with the movies began when it played host to one of London’s first ever film shows in 1896, the year of cinema’s birth. The original venue is believed to have been a haunt of the young Alfred Hitchcock who lived in nearby Leytonstone. Hitchcock’s family were keen entertainment-lovers and it is inconceivable they would not have been regular visitors to the area’s most popular venue.
The cinema was built to present a mixture of films and live performances and was therefore equipped with an expensive purpose-built Christie cinema organ and first rate stage facilities.
