Pavilion Cinema

Located on Moorgate at the corner with Park Road in Ormskirk, Lancashire. The Pavilion Cinema was opened on 7th August 1911 with “The Cattle Baron’s Daughter”. All seating was on a single floor. The proscenium was 24 feet wide, and there was a small stage.

A Western Electric(WE) sound system was installed in 1930. It was independently operated throughout its life. The Pavilion Cinema was closed in 1981. There were plans to convert the building into a market hall, but these came to nothing.

It operated as a nightclub named Arriba since at least 2012, later becoming The Loft which closed on 30th March 2017.

How can a 14-year-old cinema be called “a new picture theatre”?

And why should a “new hall” be “entirely redecorated”.

Where Ginger Bread Comes From.

A new picture theatre, the Pavilion, has been opened at Ormskirk to “succeed” the Institute, which, in future, will probably be used for whist drives and dances, etc. Mr. F. W. Locke, a well-known Liverpool exhibitor, has an interest in both halls. The Pavilion has seating capacity for nearly 600 persons and has been entirely redecorated. Mr. Fred Locke is managing the new hall.

Phillip,The 1914 edition of Kine Weekly Yearbook gives the Pavilion as the only cinema operating in Ormskirk. Same in the 1927 edition. It obviously was not a ‘new’ cinema when it was redecorated in 1925. I have no details for an Institute.
