Located in Atherton to the northwest of Manchester. The Volunteer Hall opened on 18th November 1883. It screened films courtesy of the Sovereign Picture Company who also supplied the “Sems” with shows that began on 10th February 1908 but the venture was short-lived and had probably ended by 1913. Some of the first shorts to be shown were: “The Kind Hearted Tramp”, “The Curate’s Double”, “Good Luck for the New Year”, “Brigand’s Daughter”, “His First Row”, “Lady Doctor’s Husband” and “The Troubles of the Twins”. Films of Rugby League matches were also shown. By September 1909 the company behind the venture was the Universal Picture Company. The Volunteer Hall is no longer standing.
