Located in the Lincolnshire seaside town of Mablethorpe. The Pie-in-Hand Café was built around 1903. On the top of the façade of the building was a wooden figurehead, said to be taken from a ship, which had a representation of a pie in a raised hand. In 1929 it was converted into the Pie-in-Hand Cinema, screening silent 16mm films. It has been said to have used rear projection. The owner was William Jackson.

The Pie-in-Hand Cinema operated as a silent cinema, and after closing by 1932, it became an amusement arcade. The façade has been modified a little, and in November 2009, the building was standing unused.
