Located in Earlestown, Newton-le-Willowa, Lancashire on Chemical Street, just off Queen Street. The Hippodrome Cinema was built of iron & wood, and was opened the first week of November 1910. It also presented variety acts as part of the programme. It was operated by Harry Kemp.

The Hippodrome Cinema was destroyed by fire on the afternoon of 29th August 1929. The film on screen that week was “Romance of the Underworld”. There was talk of rebuilding, but this came to nothing.
