Location shown on 1914 OS Map

The New Palace Cinema had opened by 1914 when it was operated New Palace (Bolsover) Ltd. and the manager was W.A. Pitkin. The building was set back from the street where it had a very narrow entrance. It had seating for 589, a 24ft wide proscenium and there was also a cafĂ© for the convenience of patrons. In the early-1930’s it was equipped with a British Thomson-Houston(BTH) sound system. From 1938 it was re-named Plaza Cinema. In the 1950’s it was equipped with CinemaScope and the proscenium was widened to 30ft. By 1968 the Plaza Cinema was operated by Clarence Edward Slack. It was still open in 1969, but by 1970 it had closed and became a bingo club. It then became a Kwik Save supermarket. The narrow entrance of the building and the auditorium have been demolished, and a Co-Op Food Store now operates on the site.
