The Windmill Theatre (re-named The Windmill International), was a well-known theatre situated on Great Windmill Street in London, popular for the Revue and Variety theatre performances. It was originally opened as a cinema in 1909 (Palais de Luxe) and was one of the first cinemas to show silent films, however due to the growth of larger cinemas in London the cinema was forced to close. It wasn’t until 1930 that the building transformed into the Windmill Theatre. It was well known for its glamorous nudes on stage known as ‘The Windmill Girls’.
