Venue Information


The Vue West End opened in the late 1990's utilising the facade of the former Warner Theatre, which opened on 12th October 1938 on the same site. The new multiscreen cinema was constructed behind this old facade.

The architects of the original theater were E.A. Stone and T.R. Somerford. The frontage was faced with reconstructed marble with a large relief panel by sculptor Bainbridge Copnall in each corner depicting spirits of sight and sound. There is a large central tower feature in a concave recess bearing the Warner name. The opening film was Errol Flynn in "The Adventures of Robin Hood" and the 1,789 seat cinema was equipped with a 3Manual Compton organ. The original Warner Theatre was twinned in 1970 and by 1981 there were 5-screens inside the building. It was time for a major change and the auditorium section of the original Warner Theatre was demolished in the mid-1990's.

There are now nine auditoria seating between 126 and 414 with a total capacity of around 2,500.
