Located in Ilkeston, Derbyshire. The King’s Picture House was opened on 22nd March 1915, and was named King’s after a visit to the town by King George V earlier in the year. It was designed by architect H. Tatham. Seating was provided for 1,199 in the stalls and 175 in the small circle. The auditorium walls were lined with tapestry panels. In 1936 it was modernised to the plans of architect Reginald W.G. Cooper.
The King’s Picture House was equipped with CinemaScope around 1954, and a new 44 feet wide proscenium was built. It was always independently operated and closed on 29th February 1964 with Doris Day in “The Thrill of It All, and was demolished. The Albion Shopping Mall now stands on the site.
