Wellington Cinema

The Wellington Hall opened on 25th February 1911 with a selection of Shanley’s Electric Animated Pictures. After the end of World War I it was re-named Wellington Cinema. In October 1929 the Wellington Cinema was equipped to show ‘talkies’ and the first of these was Morton Downey in “Mothers Boy”.

In February 1930 new operators took over and it was renamed Pavilion Cinema and in October 1930 it was the Pavilion Cinema and Palais de Dance, with dancing on Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday, and films on the others days. Dancing was halted in November 1930, but film continued 7 days a week until December 1930 when the cinema was closed.
