Located on Darncombe Street at the corner of Raby Street – said to be Moss Side’s first cinema. Listed in Kelly’s Street Directory for 1920 with proprietor Walter Griffin. He was still operating the Darncombe Picture House in 1927, and by 1928 he had re-named it Savoy Cinematograph Hall. It was still open in 1929 but had closed by 1934. It became a Salvation Army Citadel. It was demolished in the early-1970’s.

Picture in the Manchester City Council Local Image collection from 1967 (m09186) when it was being used by the Salvation Army – search Darncombe Cinema at www.http://images.manchester.gov.uk
