King's Picture House

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Located in Ilkeston, Derbyshire. The King’s Picture House was opened in 1914, and was named King’s after a visit to the town by King George V earlier in the year. Seating was provided for 1,199 in the stalls and 175 in the small circle. The auditorium walls were lined with tapestry panels.

The King’s Picture House was equipped with CinemaScope around 1954, and a new 44 feet wide proscenium was built. It was always independently operated and closed in 1964, and was demolished. Shops now stand on the site.
