Opened on October 14, 1937 with Dorothy Lamour in “Jungle Princess”. Located in an upmarket suburb of Gatley/Cheadle in Cheshire, near Stockport, and now part of Greater Manchester. The Tatton Kinema had seating provided for 900 in the stalls and 300 in the circle. It included an 18 foot stage, six dressing rooms, and a restaurant. It was designed by Manchester based architects J. B. Teasdale and M. C. Sunter of Manchester.
In 1971, the restaurant was converted to a 111-seat cinema known as Tatton Minor, opening on 4th February 1971 with “Airport”. It had a fully automatic rear projection system. The original cinema became Tatton Major. On 17th November 1975, the Major closed and was twined with the larger stalls area becoming the 647 seat Tatton Major, the former circle the 247 seat Tatton Minor, and the restaurant cinema the Tatton Mini.
It was an extremely successful cinema – one of the most profitable in the North West and was eventually bought by Apollo who renamed it Apollo Cinema 1,2,&3.
A multiplex opened about a mile away and the Apollo Cinema closed around 2000. The cinema has recently been demolished except for its facade, which flats have been constructed behind.
