Located on Cheapside at Forster Square, this was built within the new Midland House office building as a twin cinema by the Cinecenta chain. The Cinecenta & Penthouse Cine Club opened on 17th April 1969.
Cinecenta screened regular release films in its 260-seat auditorium, and opened with Albert Finney in "Charlie Bubbles". The Penthouse Cine Club screened un-rated sex films in its 190 seat auditorium and opened with the Swedish film "I, A Woman".
The Cinecenta was open to the general public, but the Penthouse Cine Club was a members only cinema.
The Cinecenta chain was taken over by the Leeds based Star Cinemas chain in September 1979, and the cinemas were closed on 7th September 1983 with the Cinecenta playing "Nathallie" and "Hot Tee Shirts", and the Penthouse Cine Club playing "Take Me In" and "Pleasure Cruise".
