Cinema in Harrow

cinema in Harrow could improve community cohesion

Harrow Council received a planning application for the site of the Safari Cinema, in Station Road.

There are plans to build 78 flats in a block up to 11 storeys high – though the application also states there will be space for a cinema to be maintained.




The original cinema opened in 1936, featuring an art deco-style façade, and showcased a variety of films and other acts.




It has gone through numerous changes – notably, in terms of design, the introduction of metal cladding on the front – and is now a specialist Bollywood cinema.
