Nuvic Cinema

Located in Settle, Yorkshire, this was the only purpose-built cinema in the town. It was owned by local people; the Graham family. The first, and only other cinema, in the market town was the Kirkgate Cinema in the former Victoria Hall (a former music hall); which explains the choice of name: Nuvic Cinema.

The Nuvic Cinema is not listed in Kinematograph Year Book for 1931; and is only named in the 1942 edition. KYB 1947 lists 440 seats, 21 foot proscenium and Imperial sound system. KYB 1954 has 380 seats and British Acoustic sound.

With the decline in attendances in the late-1960’s, the Nuvic Cinema owners converted the premises to a roller-skating rink. Eventually the Co-op acquired and extended the property and operate it as a supermarket.

My father, Alfred Busfield, used to be a projectionist here in the 1950s, I used to be an excellent roller skater as I had unlimited use of the rink, I remember it being installed.
