Located in Gorleston-on-Sea, just south of Great Yarmouth. The Coliseum Cinema opened on August Bank Holiday 1913, seating was provided for 1,000 on one level. It had a 26 feet wide proscenium and there was also a dance hall and a cafe attached.
In 1930, when it was equipped for talkies, the cinema also received an Art Deco style make-over and had a new facade.
Closed on 10th January 1970 with Tony Curtis in “Monte Carlo or Bust” and Barry Sullivan in “Buckskin”. It was demolished later in 1970. If I recall correctly, it was offered as a going concern, but the family had no one interested in continuing to operate the cinema.
Shops were built on the site at the corner of Feathers Plain and High Street.
