Hollywood Cinema

The Corn Exhange was built in 1857 and has a frontage with Corinthian columns. It has operated as a cinema from the 1930’s and was re-named Exchange Theatre by 1947 when the seating capacity was given as 700.

In 1961, the building was sub-divided with the stalls area becoming a dance hall and the circle remaining as a cinema.

Today it operates as a 3-screen cinema, operated by the independent Hollywood Cinemas chain.

Originally a single-floor affair but a balcony was added probably during the 1930s. Colin Aldis leased it from 1965 to 1992 using his initials in the name CBA Cinema. It operated as a bingo-hall between 1973 and 1976 when Aldis took over the Memorial Hall to screen films. Trevor Wicks took over in 1992 and it became the Hollywood Cinema.
