Another of the great lost treasures of South London, the Broadway Theatre, New Cross, opened in 1897, became a cinema in 1911 and was demolished in the 1960s. The architect was WGR Sprague, who also designed the still standing Notting Hill Coronet. It was situated on New Cross Road/Deptford Broadway, opposite Deptford High Street, on the corner of Tanners Hill. It seems to have been generally known as the Broadway Theatre, New Cross rather than the Deptford Broadway Theatre. And you could get the tram there too!
