The Cromwell Picture House was built in 1919 but didn’t open until 26th September 1920. It was located on the corner of Cromwell Road and Gerald Road in the Pendleton area of Salford.
“Talkies” were first shown in 1930 with the first film being "The Singing Fool", starring Al Jolson.
During World War II, the Cromwell Cinema was extremely popular with the American troops who were billeted at the nearby old Salford Racecourse.
Sadly, the Cromwell Cinema closed on 3rd October 1959. It was left shuttered for about three years until a "bulldozer happy" Salford Council purchased it for £5,000 and, in December 1962, they did what they do best and demolished it. An office building named Cromwell House was built on the site.
