Located in the Dingle district to the south of the city, at the corner of Park Road and Beresford Road. The site had previously been occupied by a furniture depository, which had been destroyed by fire in the early-1920’s. The Beresford Cinema was opened around 26th January 1922 by T. Halliwell Hughes who operated a small chain of 7 cinemas. Seating was provided for 797 in the stalls and 250 in the circle. In March 1928 it was taken over by the Denman Picture Houses chain, a subsidiary of the Gaumont Picture Houses chain.

The Circuit Management Association (CMA) soon to be re-named The Rank Organisation closed the Beresord Cinema on 29th September 1956 with George Montgomery in “Seminole Uprising” & Bill Owen in “Not So Dusty”. The building was converted in a Mecca Bingo Club. It was later demolished for road widening and today the area is small grassed area with trees.
