The Friday Photos: London's Cinemas

Think cinema in London and most people think of the bright lights of the West End, the IMAX on the Waterloo roundabout, or perhaps BFI Southbank but there are many more picture palaces dotted around the capital, both in the centre and further out. Sadly, many of them have closed down now, but their art deco buildings remain, either dilapidated and empty, or redeveloped into other properties.

Thanks to the following photographers for use of their images via flickr: Eurovizion, GlenHoosierSands, Judy,  KirsteenKris Wood, M@, PastLondon, Paul Wrightshadow_in_the_water, Stuart SpicerStuart Sunley.

Fascinating, but I'd like to see detail. What are they? Which ones are closed? What are they now? Which ones are art deco?
