Cannon 1 & 2

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Opened as the Electric Cinema on Boxing Day, 26th December 1911 -a conversion from a skating rink. Refurbished in 1927 with a café. In December 1959 it taken over by Gardner Cinemas and the name became Astor Cinema.

It became Studio Cinema 1 when Star Cinemas took over on 22nd March 1970. Star Cinemas twinned the cinema in May 1971 (Another source dates this as March 1970) and it became Studios 1 & 2 with seating for 560 & 228 seats. Cannon took over Star Cinemas on 29th November 1985 and it was re-named Cannon 1 & 2. They planned modernisation in March 1988 but did not proceed due to cost, and the Cannon 1 & 2 was closed on 31st March 1988. The Flicks Nightclub took over the building in 1990. It had closed by 2012, and the building stands unused.
