    History...
    The Carlton Cinema opened on 9th September 1928, when the first film to be shown was “Lonesome Ladiesâ€￾; the huge Art-Deco building was designed by the local architects Blackmore & Sykes, with seating for 1,671 people and featuring the distinctive globe, which remains at roof level. The Carlton was well used by the population of Newington, and after suffering minor damage during World War Two, the building remained in use as a cinema until 1967, when the last film shown was “Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machinesâ€￾ in April of that year. Following refurbishment, the downstairs seating was removed, to be replaced by tables and chairs, following which, the building was used for the latest craze of Bingo, which was then sweeping the nation and indirectly saving many old theatres from demolition. Bingo continued at The Carlton as part of the Mecca group untill 2008 when it closed its doors for the last time.
