The Lido Cinema opened on 28th March 1955 with “Take the Stage” starring Donald O'Connor and Gale Storm. It was built by Troxy Cinemas Ltd. about a mile from their Troxy Cinema. The Lido Cinema was the first post-war cinema in Belfast and the first to have CinemaScope installed. Seating was on one floor. Among the up and coming acts at the opening ceremony was a young comedian Frank Carson.
Inevitably, the Lido Cinema didn’t last long, and it closed in 1970. It was purchased by the local RC community and, in the late-1990s, was a Catholic church. It has since been demolished and a new Catholic Church has been built on the site.
