Located in Devonport, near Plymouth, Devon, at the top of Fore Street. The Public Hall, which had shown films in the early-1900’s, was converted into the Electric Theatre by Guy Prance and opened in December 1909, the same year the Tivoli Cinema was opened directly opposite. Seating was provided for 700. It was later taken over by Sydney Boultwood and was closed in 1930, to be rebuilt to the plans of noted theatre architect Bertie Crewe.
The new Electric Cinema opened in late-1931. Seating was now provided for 2,300. It had a 70ft wide proscenium. There was a large stage and six dressing rooms. It was operated by the independent Electric Theatre (Devonport) Ltd.
The Electric Cinema was destroyed by German bombs on 24th April 1941, the same bombing raid also destroyed the Tivoli Cinema and so badly damaged the Hippodrome Theatre, that it never re-opened.
