NOTES: This cinema was taken into the Odeon circuit in 1935 only to be taken over in 1938 by H. Godwin Longthorn, an independent distributor. It closed in 1940 following bomb damage. It was taken back, repaired and reopened by Odeon in 1950. It closed as a cinema in 1956 and then operated as a disco. It was later demolished and a block of flats was built on the site.
