Located on Stockport Road, opposite Alma Road. The Grand Theatre opened as a purpose-built cinema in 1913. It had an attractive facade, with a columned verandah above the entrance, and a pediment on top, which originally carried the ‘Grand’ name. By 1937, it was operated by the independent Trevelyan Cinemas. In the early-1950’s it became part of the Snape Cinemas chain.
The Grand Theatre was closed on 2nd February 1957 with James Mason in “The Desert Fox” and Richard Widmark in “Don’t Bother to Knock”. In 1958, it was converted into St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Church. It later became a bedding and furniture store, then by the 1970’s an antique store. It was demolished in February 2004, and the site remained an empty plot in December 2007.
