The Central Hall Mission was built as a Methodist church, possibly in the late 1890’s/early 1900’s. It contained an organ and seating was provided in stalls and a large balcony.

During the 1930’s and into the early 1940’s it was used occasionally as a public cinema, especially on Saturday afternoons for childrens film shows. This all ended when the building was destoyed by German bombs in January 1945. The remains were demolished and the site was redeveloped.
