Previous Names: Princess Cinema
The Princess Cinema opened in 1910. It was a rather uninspiring, felt-roofed brick building, set back from Newtownards Road near Dee Street. (My photograph, taken in November 1998, shows the building, which had started as a funeral parlour, then skating rink, adjacent to Brown’s Funeral business.) In 1912 the manager of the Picturedrome opened a cinema almost opposite the Princess Cinema - and called his cinema New Princess Palace as well! The subsequent confusion led to this earlier cinema being known as the Old Princess Cinema, in which guise it closed in 1927. Its current use is unclear.
