Built on the site of a Victorian mansion and opened as the Kismet Cinema in the early-1920’s. It was later taken over by the Greater Union Theatres chain and the interior was extensively re-modeled in a Streamline Moderne style.

The final film screened was the Bo Derek, Dudley Moore comedy “10” when the theatre closed on 6th June June 1980.

I saw 2001 here when it did a rerun in about 1979. Good times :)
