The St George’s Hall Electric Palace opened in 1912 with 350 seats. It was purchased by Joseph Pugsley in 1927, and substantially extended and renamed St George’s Picture House.
Further renovations and alterations were carried out in 1934 and it re-opened as the Granada Cinema in July 1935.
The narrow frontage led to a long foyer leading to the auditorium at right angles to it. The proscenium was 24 feet wide.
The Granada Cinema closed in December 1961 with John Wayne in “The Alamo”. It was immediately converted into an independent bingo club, which continued for about thirty years.
The property was acquired by the J.D. Wetherspoon chain and the resulting pub opened on 8th December 1998, though the bar area is confined to the former foyer and the "St George’s Hall" name re-appeared.
