Rio Cinema

Located in the Bakersfield/Sneinton district of Nottingham. The Rio Cinema was built for Sam Graham’s Levin Circuit and opened in September 1939 with Dick Foran in “Hearts of the North”. It was designed in an Art Deco style by architect John Tait who was working out of the office of architect Reginald W.G. Cooper.

The Rio Cinema was closed in 1959 with Norman Wisdom in “The Square Peg! and "Dateline Nightmare”. It was converted into a bingo club.

By 1991 it was used for storage, a discount cash & carry supermarket and a snooker hall upstairs. In 2015 it is a Nisa Local supermarket.
