Theatre: Penge Empire
Performance: Rumours of 1925
Main Actors: Variety Artists
This large format, 6-sided, theatre programme presents the comedy revue, Rumours of 1925.
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.
At top of inside page is a personal annotation written presumably by the original theatre-goer: W. White 3/1/1925 and who he/she took.
