The Cavendish Cinema was built built for Mr. Shapeero of the Rocket Cinema Co. He employed Derby based architects J. Browning & W.S. Hayes, who in 1937 had designed the Cavendish Cinema in Derby.
The Cavendish Cinema in Nottingham was opened on 15th December 1938 with Will Hay in “Convict 99” and Nan Grey in “Black Doll”. Film star Googie Withers attended the opening of this luxury suburban cinema.
Seating in the stalls was provided for 1,122, and in the circle 544. The proscenium was 30 feet wide, the stage 14 feet deep and there were four dressing rooms.
Always an independent cinema, the Cavendish Cinema was closed on 15th September 1968 with Charlton Heston in “Will Penny” and Mike Henry in “Tarzan and the Great River”. It was converted into a bingo club, which continued until 1991. The building was then boarded up.
In recent years it has operated as an I.C. Discount Warehouse store.
