In 1911, local entrepreneur and filmmaker Ernest Symonds converted the 1865 Beverley Corn Exchange for use as a public cinema. The theater is a listed building and has remained, for the most part, unchanged over the years. The cinema showed films constantly since its opening, until 2002, when competition from a nearby multiplex forced it to cut back its film schedule and beef up its concert and live performance schedule.
