NOTES: Originally the Theatre Royal, which had been completely rebuilt in 1886 to designs by Frank Matcham, this building was converted into the Rialto Super cinema in 1931 by Butterworth & Duncan. It was taken over by Gaumont in 1957 and was renamed Odeon in 1959. It closed in 1974 and was demolished to make way for an NCP car park.
