Designed by C.C. Chadwick and William Watson of Leeds for proprietors John Claughton and Lionel Harpham, the New Crescent Super Cinema opened on August 1, 1921 with the silent British movie "Build Thy House". There was an organ and a ‘first class orchestra’.
The architects made the most of a steeply sloping site on Beeston Hill and a small variety stage was included.
The cinema closed July 13, 1968 and was converted for bingo casino usage.
This closed and the building was empty and for sale in February 2002. It is now a massage parlour/health club.
