The New Theatre Royal was built in 1868, opening in 1869. It was designed by architect William Harrison and originally had 1,800 seats. It was converted into a music hall in 1871. Taken over by the MacNaghten Vaudeville Circuit in 1904, it was re-named Palace Theatre. In 1909, it was taken over by new owners, and was converted into cinema use.

By 1934, it had been re-named Gaiety Cinema. Still operating in 1954, it had closed by 1963.
