Located in the Manchester inner-city district of Ancoats. The Don Cinema Theatre opened in 1912. It was a purpose built cinema, which had a tower feature on the left of the facade. Seating in the auditorium was on a steeply sloping floor. It had a 28 feet wide proscenium.
The Don Cinema was taken over by the Union Cinemas chain in July 1936. In October 1937, they were taken over by the Associated British Cinema(ABC) chain.
ABC closed the Don Cinema on 8th February 1958 with Laurence Olivier and Marilyn Monroe in "The Prince and the Showgirl". The building went over to industrial use for many years, and was later demolished. Today, the site remains as a grassed over area, at the corner of Beswick Street and Ashton New Road.
