Porte, Burntisland

The Porte Cinema opened in 1915. It was operated by the local Burntisland Cinema House Company. Taken over in 1931 by Burntisland Associated Pictures it closed in 1939 when their new Palace Cinema opened in the town. The Kinematograph Yearbook, 1937 edition, lists it as the Cinema House.

The Porte Cinema was used for storage by British Road Services and later by Pickford’s in the 1960’s. It became a snooker hall and amusement arcade, but this closed and the building was plased on the list of Buildings At Risk Register. It was recently converted into housing.
