Comedy Theatre

The Oddfellows Hall was opened in the 1890’s. It became the Central Hall of Varieties in 1899, but was destroyed by fire in January 1900. It was rebuilt and re-opened as the Central Palace of Varieties in October 1901. Around 1909 it was re-named Comedy Theatre of Varieties. It was showing films as part of the programme from 1913 and became a full time cinema known as the Comedy Theatre by 1927. By 1931 it had been equipped with a British Talking Pictures(BTP) sound system.

The Comedy Theatre was closed in June 1958 and was demolished later that year. A furniture store now occupies the building on the site.
