Information for this tour was contributed by Ken Roe.

Originally opened in December 1900 as the Euston Palace of Varieties Theatre, later known as the Euston Theatre and Euston Music Hall. It remained in live theatre use until 1932 when the interior was adapted by architect Andrew Mather and converted into a cinema with a reduced seating capacity of 1,170.

After closing, this impressive theatre standing directly opposite the equally impressive Victorian Gothic architecture of St. Pancras Railway Station, stood empty for several years before being demolished and a bland Council office building was built on the site.
