The golden age of cinema building occurred at the same time that Metro-Land was being created, and some of the periods greatest examples of Cinema design are situated there. Local architects such as F.E. Bromige with his Rayners Lane Grovesnor, and A.P. Starkey, who designed cinemas throughout the area, created extravagant and graceful buildings that used their Art Deco and Moderne stylings to create places where the public could escape from everyday life. Unfortunately many of their designs, and those by others like George Coles and J Owen Bond, have been demolished. However some examples still exist and have protected Listed status, such as Muswell Hill Odeon and the aforementioned Rayners Lane cinema.
