The Imperial Picture House opened on 7 December 1914 with “Little Lord Fauntleroy” starring H. Agar Lyons and Gerald Royston. The interior was fitted out in high quality, artistic style, and there was an ‘old English’ tea-room.

The Imperial Picture House was closed on 28th November 1959, with owner George Lodge thanking the audience at the last show and inviting them to take away souvenirs of the old cinema! The final film appears to have been “Lonelyhearts”, starring Montgomery Clift, Robert Ryan and Myrna Loy. The Imperial Picture House was demolished, and shops now occupy the site.
