It was opened by organist Harry Packard. On 19th May 1930 it was equipped with a British Thomson Houston(BTH) sound system and “Janet Gaynor in "Sunny Side Up” was the first talking to be shown. It closed in 1962 and was converted into a FineFare supermarket. In the 1990’s it became a car showroom for Motor World.
