Best (and oldest [purpose-built]) cinema in London - in fact in the UK. >
The Phoenix, afternoons with D, neon signs, art deco, films, the journey home

Alfie says:

I love the Phoenix, I used to live just up the road from it. When 'Supersize me' came out, the Phoenix gave out free tickets to all Mcdonalds head office employees. McDonalds Head office is just across the road from the Phoenix :)

I work (pro bono) on the Marketing Committee of the Phoenix that did the McDonalds thing - not too many of them showed up for some reason. What road did you live on?

I really appreciate if you coluld comunicate that the Cinema Lumière in Pisa (Italy) is the oldest purpose-built, continually operating cinema, in the world.
The Lumière opened in December 16th, 1905.

In Italy one of the first commercial screening of movies with fully synchronized sound took place in the Cinema Lumière (Pisa - Italy) in October 19th, 1906 by the Fabbrica Pisana di Pellicole Parlate, patented by Pietro Pierini with the name of "Isosincronizzatore".

Until 2008, Korsør Biograf Teater (opened January 30th, 1907) in the danish city Korsør was listed the oldest cinema in the Guinness Book of World Records. Before a cinema in Szczecin, Poland, was listed as the oldest.
