The Essex Theatre was a bargain cinema, running older movies for a buck. Not sure when this theatre closed. It now houses a church.

My mother and I laughed ourselves silly during a screening of “When Comedy Was King” -a look back at the really funniest films produced.

The Essex closed in 1977 and was already operating by 1949.

From 1978-1980 the Essex became the Atlantic. It became the Essex once again when it was twinned in 1981. It was tripled in 1983.
