Opened on 19th January 1917, the Vernon Picture House took its name from the street it is situated upon. It lies in the Nottingham suburb of Upper Basford at the corner of Vernon Road and Southwark Street. It had a 17 feet wide proscenium and in 1930 was equipped with a Western Electric(WE) sound system. By 1948 it had been taken over by Levin’s Invincible Cinema Circuit. It appears to have had an uneventful life until closure on 27th August 1961 when the final films were “The Monolith Monsters” and “Abbott & Costello Meet the Mummy”. From 2nd September 1961 it was re-opened as a bingo club, which closed in 1990.
It is now an industrial unit operated by Flashing Services Ltd. and – not verified – is reported to have been gutted inside, including the removal of the balcony.
