Opened 1928  to an atmospheric design with a Mexican exterior and a chinese interior - the projection box was in shape of Chinese face with the lights coming out of the eyes. Outlines of painted dragons and scrolls were still visible on ceiling - stadium with barrel-vaulted roof. Closed 1962, then bingo. Now derelict. Went on fire while being converted to a children's play area; now there is an application to demolish it.  B-listed.
