Opened as the Oxford Picture House it was built for a company of the same name. Seating is given as 792. It was later called the Oxford Super-cinema. After Cinemascope was installed the proscenium was altered and the seating capacity reduced to 768.

The Oxford was used as a nightclub called ‘Hiccups’ until the 1970’s. After lying empty for a number of years, the site was then purchased in the early 1980’s by Morrisons supermarkets and the cinema was demolished. A petrol station now stands on the site.
