Rock Cinema

Located in Cudworth just over 3 miles northeast of Barnsley, South Yorkshire. Little is known about the Rock Cinema, except that broadcaster Michael Parkinson used to visit it in his youth and that it was named after Rock Farm.

The Rock Cinema was opened 24th February 1928 with the silent film “Michael Strogoff”. It is listed in Kinematograph Year Books 1931-1947 under the name only with no details expept a Western Electric(WE) sound system. By 1954 it had a British Thomson Houston(BTH) sound system and a little more information, including the proprietors and prices. It was closed 28th April 1962 with Kirk Douglas in “Tunes of Glory” and Michael Rennie in “The Lost World”. It became a Walker’s Bingo Club.

It is currently a retail shop specialising in children’s toys and nursery goods.
