A small town cinema that opened in 1935. It was operated by the W. Truman Dicken Cinemas chain and closed in 1956.

I heard various legends about the hall when I worked at Bath in the late 1960’s. The main story being that had been converted from a 1816 built Methodist chapel, and for many years retained chapel seats in its front rows. The building was extended when it became a cinema. It had a 21 feet wide proscenium, and never converted to screening Cinemascope films.

Since closing it has been in retail use as a carpet warehouse store.
