The Rutland Cinema was opened on 28th April 1930. It was built and operated by Gaumont British Theatres. Designed by architect Thomas Bowhill Gibson in a Neo-Classical style. The proscenium was surrounded by a large painted panel depicting woodland scenes in an Atmospheric style. It was equipped with a Western Electric(WE) sound system. It was equipped with a 3Manual/11Ranks Ingram organ.

It was re-named Gaumont on 6th March 1950. Becoming part of the Rank Organisation, the organ was removed in 1958. The Gaumont was closed on 30th May 1962 due to a fire.

It was demolished and an office block Exchange Tower was built on the site.
