    Opened in the 1920s housing 900 seats which incorporated artistic painted scenes in the panels on the walls below a arched ceiling which was decorated with molded strapwork. It also had a small stage which was sometimes used for drama and variety performances.

    It the 1930s it was equiped with sound, and later because of it's sucess it was extended which accommodated an extra 80 patrons. It was taken over by Star Cinemas chain in the late 1930s, who installed the new Cinemascope screen in the 1950s with a 29 foot concave screen.

    The main screen was shut in 1984 because of problems with the heating which was not viable to repair. Soon after it's fittings were sold to another cinema, it was later made into a snooker hall and then a nightclub.
