The Wellington Street Picture Palace was opened in May 1912, initially with 270 seats. In 1924 it was taken over by W. Southan Morris and re-named Wellington Picture House. In 1930 it was taken over by H.W. Meade and re-named Wellington Cinema. It was equipped with a British Acoustic(BA) sound system.

In 1951 H.W. Meade sold the Wellington Cinema to a firm known as Coronet Cinemas and it was renamed Coronet Cinema. But this was short lived and the Coronet Cinema was closed in May 1951. The cinema and other adjoining properties were demolished later for a ring-road to be built.
