Previous Names: Empire Theatre
I have very little information on the Hippodrome Middleton. It opened as the Empire Theatre in 1916, seating 915, in stalls and either one or two balconies. It had a large stage with full fly tower.
By 1937 it was operated as a cinema by Victory Pictures (Manchester) Ltd. who were a subsidiary of the H.D. Moorhouse Circuit.
It later became a bingo hall and finally a nightclub which closed in 1997. It stood empty and unused until 2007 when it was demolished. It is believed that much of the interior was stripped/altered for its final use. It was situated on Corporation Street, outside the town centre.
