From the Magazine 'Modern Wonder' 25th June 1938
The Artesian well is mentioned
This was still in use, as the water supply for the cinema, until about 1973/74
As we were having so much trouble with the pump it was decided to cap the well
and go over to the supplier Thames Water
The Leicester Square Theatre also used an Artesian well, and this was capped a few years earlier
when the cinema was modernised
