Page 146. " the Britannia Theatre, Hoxton "

The Britannia Theatre was situated at 115-117 High Street*, Hoxton, in the London Borough of Hackney.

It operated between 1858 and 1900, when it was severely damaged by fire.

A Gaumont Cinema was built on the site in 1913 (some sources say 1923), but this too was largely destroyed during the Blitz in 1940.
