Central Cinema

Located in Beighton, now a suburb of Sheffield 6 miles south east of the City centre, but previously across the county border in north Derbyshire. Opened 7th August 1913. Destroyed by fire 29th March 1922, rebuilt and reopened in September 1923. In 1942 it is listed as having a British Thomson Houston(BTH) sound system. Actress Pat Phoenix, who played Elsie Tanner in Coronation Street, visited just before it closed on 22nd March 1963; it became a bingo hall.

The front part was later demolished but the rear part of the auditorium remains in use as a garage.
