The Forum opened in 1938 with an R.C.A. sound system. Hoylake Entertainments Ltd were the first and only owners and the cinema seated 638 patrons originally. Early prices (in 1951 ) were 10d to 2/–. Programmes were once nightly with matinees on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Cinemascope was installed in 1955 when the number of seats was reduced to cater for the new lines of sight.

The Forum stood at the junction of Dorvil Road and The Square. In March 2017 the site was occupied by the car park for a Eurospar supermarket.

A book partly in Welsh says the Forum closed in 1970, the last projectionist being Kenneth Scott.
