A photocopy of a photo of the St James cinema in the 1950s

A conversion of a building originally built in 1882 as a club room for the Harrogate Conservative Club. For 20 years prior to cinema shows the building had been used as a sale room. It opened as the St James Cinema in mid-April 1907 and closed on Saturday 19th May 1960 with “Blind Date” and “Doctor at Sea”.

The building was converted into a supermarket but demolished early this century and a brand new Marks and Spencer store was built on the site, opening in November 2005. The St James cinema backed onto the Central cinema – the new M&S store occupies the site of both.
