Tonic (Queen's)

Tonic detail

160 Battlefield Road
1922-1962

Almost unrecognisable today, the pub here was once a small cinema, nicknamed the Catacombs because of its auditorium, built partly underneath the surrounding tenements. Opened as the Queen's Cinema, it was renamed the Tonic, and was showing continental art house and retro films until closure in 1962.
