Stadium Cinema

The Stadium Cinema, located at the junction of Shankill Road and Tennent Street, was the pride of the Shankill. It was the largest single-level cinema in Northern Ireland, with seating on a stadium plan that had a raised stepped section at the rear. It had a huge circular 46ft diameter foyer and the longest auditorium, at 180ft, in Belfast. It opened to great acclaim in 1937 but eventually closed in the mid-1970’s.

It became the Stadium Youth and Community Centre, but I believe by the late-1990’s it had been demolished.
