A wonderful example of a fantastic Edwardian period picture house. It opened as an entertainment centre known as the Kursaal, and it also contained a 120 seat cinema known as the Electric Theatre which opened on 7th October 1911.
The main hall was converted into the Dome Cinema by 1921 and it originally contained 875 seats. The former Electric Theatre then became a restaurant.
The building underwent a full heritage Lottery funded restoration/renovation, closing in June 2005 and re-opening on 6th July 2007 with 580 seats in the original auditorium and a second 118 seat cinema in another part of the building.
The Dome Cinema is a Grade II* Listed building.
