Theatre: Penge Empire
Main Actors: James Furse, Beth Hayman, Maud Sherringdan
This large format, 6-sided, theatre programme presents the musical comedy, Katinka, which first opened at the Shaftesbury Theatre, London in 1923 to great reviews.
The Penge Empire opened in 1915 and successfully ran as a music hall style theatre until, in 1928, under new ownership, a projector was installed for cinematic shows as well as continuing with live theatre. Moss Empires took over the theatre in 1946 and continued live theatre but this was short lived as in Essoldo Cinemas took over the building in 1949 showing films until 1960 when it was demolished and joined the ever-increasing list of lost theatres.
