Tussaud's Cinema, London

Located on Marylebone Road at Baker Street, London. NW1 The Tussaud's Cinema opened on 26th April 1928 with "Helen of Troy". It was designed by architect F. Edward Jones and seated 1,714. It formed part of the (then new) Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum building (which remains today).


The Tussaud's Cinema was destroyed by German bombs in September 1940 (the waxworks only received minor damage). On the site was later built the London Planetarium. This was closed in around 2004 and the space has now been incorporated into the Madame Tussaud Waxworks.

    How sad the Planetarium closed - I remember the strange laid back seat for watching the 'lightshow' on the ceiling. And the wonderful projecter that sat in the middle of the dome.
