The Millfield Picture House was opened on 24th November 1913 with a screening of the 1908 Vitograph film “Antony & Cleopatra”.

Equipped with a British Thompson Houston(BTH) sound system in 1929, it was re-named Millfield Cinema by 1933.

Always independently operated, the Millfield Cinema was closed on 20th September 1959 with Glenn Ford in “The Sheepman”. It was converted into a bingo club.

By 1995 the building was in use by the Mason Organisation as a maintenance department. In recent years it has been converted into a bar and snooker club named Cheema’s.
