Bonington Cinema

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Located in the Arnold district of Nottingham. The St. Albans Picturedrome was opened in March 1913.

In late-1929, it was closed for remodeling and re-opened on 1st January 1931 as the Bonington Cinema. It was equipped with a B.T.H. sound system.

The Bonington Cinema was closed on 30th March 1957 with Stanley Baker in “The Feminine Touch” and Jeff Chandler in “The Spoilers”. The seating and projection equipment was transferred to the Arts Cinema on Broad Street. The building went into other uses, and was demolished in 1963. The Shoulder of Mutton pub was built on the site.
