Our Story

In 1911 the Picture House Cinema opened at 165 Tottenham Lane and around 1925 it was renamed Perfect Picture House. In 1929 the building was refurbished, Western Electric sound equipment was installed and the cinema reopened as the Plaza Cinema. Closed at the outbreak of war, the Plaza was badly damaged in an air raid and demolished soon after. Rosebery House was built on the site in the late 1950s; this is the building which forms the basis of Crouch End Picturehouse. It's the only surviving example of 1950s–60s Modernism in the area, and for this reason aspects of the Modernist ethos have been incorporated into the refurbishment by award-winning architects Panter Hudspith.
