A handsome cinema in Corporation Street, the Rivoli Cinema opened in September 1929. Within weeks of opening, it was equipped with a Christie 2Manual/7Rank theatre organ built by Hill, Norman & Beard and the console was on a lift. It was taken over by the J.F. Emery Circuit in 1932 and they operated in until 1933.
The organ survived in the building until CinemaScope was introduced in the mid-1950’s. The Rivoli Cinema survived into the 1960’s, but after closure as a cinema had a few other uses, including bingo, before demolition.
Not part of the major circuits, it was operated by County Playhouses (Wigan) Ltd
