This is incorrect information. This picture house was never a skating rink. The Skating Rink and The Picture Theatre/Ritz were separate buildings although located in the same area. The Skating Rink was built about 1910. The proprietor was one George Gude. Later became The Hippodrome. Both these venues were operating at the same time for a period. George started his roller skating business by holding roller skating lessons in the pavilion Maidenhead as a temporary venue until The Roller Rink was constructed. The Roller Rink was later occupied by Harvey’s a woodworking company who later also occupied the Ritz building.
