Paul Raymond was the so-called King of Soho - a man who built an empire on what's politely termed "adult entertainment" and earned a fortune, making him the richest man in Britain.
A film about his life - called "The Look of Love" - premieres tonight in Soho, with Steve Coogan playing the role of Raymond.
He's been speaking to Lucrezia Millarini.
The developer, which Ealing Council wants to replace for the development of a new cinema, says it has already started work on the project. Empire Cinemas says it complied with a council deadline to start work in October and its project managers have been in regular discussion with the council.
Ealing Council has threatened to use a Compulsory Purchase Order to take over the site but Empire says that would be counter-productive:

A unique glimpse of London at the beginning of the 20th Century has been revealed for the first time.
The capital features in film clips, unveiled today by the National Media Museum, which date back to 1901 or 1902 - making them the earliest examples of colour moving pictures ever made.
The films were created by photographer and inventor Edward Turner using a complex three-colour process he patented in 1899.
Until now, his invention had been regarded as a practical failure - but digital technology has now "unlocked" the film strips, revealing the images he produced for the first time in over a hundred years.
The clips include a street scene, with horse-drawn carriages making their way through Knightsbridge, and children playing in a garden in Hounslow.
