West's Cinema

In 1909, in St. Helier, Jersey, in the Channel Islands, T.J. West established the island’s first cinema in the Royal Hall. It was demolished in 1923 and West’s Cinema was built and opened 24th September 1923. Two imposing twin towers flanked the entrance.

In a nice touch, the Jersey Film Society was founded on 11th December 1947 at the CafĂ© Bleu, in West’s Cinema.

West’s Cinema was closed 30th December 1972 and it was demolished in 1977.
