There seems to be a bit of confusion here. The Crescent Picture House was situated in the Pierrot Pavilion and opened in July 1923. It was obviously a success as the larger Crescent Cinema was built next door and opened in June 1930. That lasted until the early 1970s and is now apartments with the facade retained. The smaller one must have closed when the larger one opened. It was eventually demolished and the Crescent Leisure Centre occupied the site. Some info here:

Imposing indeed. The interior must have been quite something.

The building has now been developed into modern apartments, but the imposing facade has been retained.
