Opened as the Playhouse on 14th May 1914, the opening films were “The Necklace of Rameses” a three-reeler from the Edison Co. and “The First Law of Nature” a two-reeler. Seating for 992 was provided in stalls and circle levels and there were also boxes that held six persons.
The Playhouse continued in use operating as an Independently owned cinema throughout its 91 years life.
Sadly, in August 2005 it was announced that the cinema would be closing at the end of that month and all fixtures and fittings were for sale. After standing empty and unused for five years, the playhouse was demolished in November 2010.
