The Adelphi Cinema was built by Jimmy Stafford and opened on 23rd January 1948 with “Calcutta” starring Alan Ladd and Gail Russell. It had 770 seats and an RCA sound system installed. The opening night also consisted of a one-act sketch called “A Cure for Nerves” and a performance by Charlie Dunne and his Band, with proceeds going to the St Vincent de Paul Society. Originally run by Frank Farrell it was bought by Midland Amusements headed by John Doris and Matthew Lyons who set up the Odeon Cinema in the town.

The Adelphi Cinema closed in 1975 and was demolished in April 1980. An Aldi supermarket currently stands on the site.
