Located in the south Liverpool district of Woolton. Opened as the Woolton Picture House on 28th January 1928, it originally had a seating capacity of 860. The Woolton Cinema is Liverpool’s very last of the old style single screen independent cinemas, with its unique blend of old style presentation, comfort, friendly staff and state of the art technology it gained a reputation amongst many Merseyside cinemagoers as Liverpool’s best loved cinema. The Woolton Cinema was closed on 3rd September 2006 due to the death of its owner and put up for sale.
It was purchased by a group of local businessmen and re-opened on 29th March 2007 as the Woolton Picture House. It was closed (together with all cinemas) on March 23, 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. On July 31, 2020 it was announced that the closure would be permanent. However public support of the cinema was overwhelming and in September 2020 it was announced that closure plans had been reversed and it would re-open.
