Located in the centre of Middlesbrough. The Cleveland Hall was built in the 1860’s as an auction and function room. In the 1870’s it became a Social & Liberal Club. By 1890 it was licenced for stage plays. Cinema use soon came in the early-1900’s and from 1908 it was operated by Thomas Thompson. In 1910 he purchased the Cleveland Hall and it was re-named Cleveland Picture Hall.

Later re-named Cleveland Picture House, it was purchased by the Denman/Gaumont British cinemas chain in March 1928, and they closed it in 1930. The building was demolished in 1936 to build the towns' bus station on the site.
