Information for this tour was contributed by Ken Roe.

This early cinema was an early casualty to the nearby Empress Electric and the Angel Picture Theatre which both opened in 1913. The Electric became briefly 'North's Automatic Exhibition', presumably a sort of amusement parlour and later it became a shop, for many years an antique shop. Recently it has become a restaurant.
