Studio Cinema, Bletchley. Circa 1971

The Studio Cinema was opened on 5th October 1936 with Gary Cooper in "Mr. Deeds Goes To Town". All seating was on a single level, and lighting in the auditorium was concealed in troughs. It was independently operated, but was soon taken over by the Shipman & King circuit.

In 1967, it was taken over by ABC/Thorn EMI. The Studio Cinema was closed on 9th December 1986 with Sigourney Weaver in “Alien”. It was a casualty of the opening of the UK’s first multiplex, the 10-screen Point at nearby Milton Keynes. It was demolished and shops and housing was built on the site.
