|Opened in November 1912, with
one handcranked projector. First show screened "A Forged Pass," "The
Plumber," "Frenzy Firewater," "The Boobe," "The Vow of Yozobel," "More
Haste Less Speed" and "Her Ladyship`s Dog." Second week "The Coming of
Christopher Columbus" was screened, which sounds more of a blockbuster
of its time, advertised as taking six years to make and costing £6000!
Not sure when it closed as a cinema, but I think it only lasted a few years. It was originally a garage and reverted back to a garage again later.
