Opened in September 1938, the magnificent State Cinema remains a large and unaltered building which has been closed since 1991. The Compton organ, projectors and all equipment remain in the building.
In recent years, Morrisons Supermarket chain purchased the entire building and adjacent car park to use the car park as an extension to their own adjacent car park. Since then a new owner purchased the building and proposed plans for re-use, which have been turned down.
The building is Grade II* Listed and is one of the most endangered buildings on the English Heritage ‘Buildings at Risk’ list.
