The Woolwich Granada

The most romantic theatre ever built?

Location: 174-186 Powis Street, Woolwich, SE18 6NL

Description: The Woolwich Granada, a Gothic densation in it's day was once described as 'the most romantic theatre ever built'.

It was designed by architect George Coles
in a modern gothic and art deco hybrid and opened in 1937.

In it's early days it became a celebrity premiere hotspot with many stars attending first nights here including Glenda Farrell, Claude Hulbert, and Buddy Holly.

Inside there's a Hall of Mirrors serving as a waiting area for balcony patrons.

Today the grade II listed former Odeon and Bingo hall is part of the thriving New Wine Church.
