The Globe Cinema was a conversion of a former Chapel. It was opened in 1913 and was always an independently operated cinema.

After a short period of closure, it was re-opened as the Savoy Cinema from 25th September 1949, with Fred Astaire in "Easter Parade". The Savoy Cinema was closed on 12th June 1955, with Maureen O'Hara in "Bagdad".

It was demolished and the site was redeveloped for a small block of flats.

The original cinema had been a converted chapel, though its replacement was largely purpose-built. It was in fact, throughout most of its life, part of small circuits of theatres.
