Forum Cinema

Located in the Bradley district of Bilston, Staffordshire, to the southeast of Wolverhampton. At the corner of Highfields Road and Bank Street. The Queen’s Picture House was opened on 17th October 1921 with Madge Titheradge in “His Story” and Charlie Chaplin in “Shoulder Arms”.

It was taken over by Woods Picture Houses in the late-1920’s, and they installed a British Thomson Houston(BTH) sound system. In 1936, it was taken over by the C.S. Joseph Circuit and a new foyer was added, and it was re-named Forum Cinema.

New owners took over in 1957, and in the early-1960’s, part-time bingo was introduced. The Forum Cinema was closed in 1964, and converted into a full time bingo club. In the 1970’s it was converted into a snooker club. By 1921 it was operating as the Triangle Bar & Grill.
