Globe Cinema 1961

Located in the Trent Bridge/The Meadows district, just to the south of the city centre. The Globe Picture House was opened on 12th January 1914. Seating was provided for 350 in the stalls and 250 in the circle. It had a 24 feet wide proscenium, and the stage 10 feet deep. It was equipped with a Western Electric(WE) sound system around 1930.

In 1941 it was taken over by the S. Graham Circuit. It was equipped with CinemaScope in 1955.

The Globe Picture House was closed in June 1961 and was converted into a bingo club, which only operated for four months. It re-opened as a cinema from 23rd October 1961 and finally closed in June 1962.

The building was later demolished for the wholesale redevelopment of the area (the address given is only approximate).

This cinema was located at the junction of London Road and Arkwright St. All the roads have been re-aligned, so the site is now in the middle of London Road beside the end of Turney St.
