Located in Spennymoor, County Durham, five miles south of Durham city. The Tivoli Cinema was opened in 1911. Soon after opening, on 25th May 1911, film jammed in the projector causing a minor fire which damaged the operating box.
The Tivoli Cinema was rebuilt to the plans of architect J.W. Hayes & Gray, re-opening on 19th October 1930. The facade was covered in white tiles. The cinema had a cafe for the convenience of its patrons. In October 1935 it was taken over by Lewis Sheckman, and passed to the Newcastle upon Tyne based Essoldo chain.
It was re-named Essoldo from 10th January 1947. Part-time bingo was introduced in the early-1960’s and it was closed to films in 1969 and became a full time bingo club. This later closed and the building became a nightclub. It was destroyed by a fire on the night of 24th/25th August 1995.
