Apollo Victoria Theatre
17 Wilton Road, London SW1V 1LG
The 2,328 seat theatre opened as a cinema in 1930. In the era of ‘super’ cinemas, Provincial Cinematograph Theatres (PCT) invited Ernest Walmsley Lewis to submit plans to build such a cinema a stone’s throw away from Victoria Station. Designing the venue was challenging, especially due to having two major roads running either side of it. Having two frontages was considered very severe; taxi drivers were said to have nicknamed the venue ‘Sing-Sing’.
