Viewing: Photo | Street View

Located in the Northern Quarter area of the City Centre. The Cosy Corner Cinema opened in September 1915 with “The Begger Girls Wedding”. It was a conversion of a shop at 29 Swan Street and was situated between two public houses. It was never converted to sound and closed in 1932 as the supply of silent films dried up.

The building still stands (in 2008) derelict, having reverted back to retail use in 1932. It is not, as the name implies, actually on a corner!
