Located in Trowbridge, Wiltshire. These were the twin screen cinemas that were situated above the multi-storey car park in Castle Place and where the Castle Place Leisure Centre is now. They opened on 6th December 1974 with “Papillon” and “The Sting”. Seating was provided for 165 in each auditorium. The Europa Cinemas closed in early-July 1982. They were unique in the fact that they were modern cinemas in the 1970’s, built at a time when it was rare that cinemas even got built.

They were very badly positioned and very open to what I remember in the last years to vandalism as they were away from a the major high street location. They were uniquely modern of the 1970’s era, had plain curtained auditoria and in my opinion were special little cinemas.

I would invite readers to submit any knowledge they have of this cinema.
