Romany Cinema

Located in Totnes, Devon. The Central Cinema opened in 1946 in a former Temperance Hall hall behind what became the Harberton Art Workshop. It was initially short lived, closing in 1947 and moving to the Seymour Hotel. However, films came back to the hall in 1951 and it was renamed the Romany Cinema and managed by the Romany Film Unit run by Kelvin D. and R. Grenville White. It closed without ceremony on 3rd September, 1964, the proprietors hoping to relocate elsewhere.

The premises became Totnes library which closed in June 2013 and the building became vacant again. Surprisingly in view of other screens in the area it re-opened in June 2014 as a cinema once again. Closed during the winter of 2016 for soundproofing to be carried out, it was re-opened on 19th May 2017 with “La eBellezza” (The Great Beauty).
