The building started life as a riding stable in 1846, and was converted into a theatre in 1905 called the Hippodrome Theatre.
This was in use, as least sporadically as a cinema by 1943, but was destroyed by fire in 1960.
It was rebuilt using the surviving exterior walls as the Tudor Cinema and at some point in the 1970’s a second screen was added on the former stage area with a separate entrance. The cinema was taken over by and renamed Cannon.
Both cinemas closed and after a short period of dereliction the Cannon was converted into a bar named ‘Livingstones’. The former flytower has been reduced in height, both entrances are in use, the frontage has been restored but inside nothing remains to suggest it was ever either a cinema or a theatre.
Livingstones bar closed in 2010 and building stands unused in August 2011.
