Chadwell Heath’s Embassy Cinema

The Embassy Cinema is a former cinema in Chadwell Heath now listed as an Asset of Community Value. Back in the day, it was referred to as The Gaumont. The building is designed in an art deco style, boasting a modern interior conceived by Harry Weston in the 1930s.

The Embassy Cinema is located on the border of Redbridge and Barking & Dagenham. It was closed down in 1966 and went on to become a bingo hall and then a wedding hall. The old cinema now benefits from community investments looking to restore it to its former glory.

The architecture designed by Harry Weston was lavish, with modernist touches and large windows. Inside, there is a very high foyer with Art Deco metalwork and a floodlit glass column with crystalline rods.
