Tivoli Cinema

In the small County Durham town of South Moor, near Stanley, the Tivoli Cinema was opened on June 19, 1922. It was a corrugated iron building behind a brick fa├žade and had 552 seats. Around 1930 it was equipped with a Western Electric(WE) sound system.

The 1940 edition showed it being owned at that time by MBC Cinemas Ltd. It had 521 seats.

By 1953 the seating capacity had been slightly reduced, to 501.

The Tivoli Cinema was closed in the late-1960’s and was converted into a warehouse. By the time I visited, in October 2005, the building was boarded up and derelict.

It has since been tidied up and re-opened as South Moor MoT Centre.
