West End Electric Theatre / Vaudeville
535 Sauchiehall Street


Opened circa June 1910,and closed by 1914. Also known as the Vaudeville, it had an L-shaped auditorium with a screen in the middle.The audience in the rear auditorium had to watch the film whilst looking in a mirror. Exists as the Charing Cross Post Office. The marvellous domed ceiling stylistically pre-dates the cinema, but
explains why the premises were chosen in the first place.
