The Cinecenta was a project of Cinecenta Ltd. who specialised in art house films. It opened as the Compton Cinema Club on December 7, 1965 screening uncensored adult films. On 21st August 1977 became the 200 seat Cineclub still screening uncensored films. A second screen opened on 10th June 1979 screening mainstream films and the seating capacities were now 114 and 113.
From December 1979 the cinemas were taken over by the Star Cinemas circuit and both screens became public cinemas from 1980. Closed on 26th March 1983 they were taken over by the Rank Organisation and re-furbished to re-open on 18th December 1983 as the Odeon Queensway, becoming a part of the former Scala Superama Cinema/Odeon Ringway which was located next door.
All the screens of the Odeon Queensway closed on 18th September 1988 and have been left empty and unused ever since.
