The ‘Overview’ text has got the sequencing of the names wrong. I do not have a complete set of Kinematograph Year Books, but those I have give the following:

KYB 1914 – Victoria Assembly Rooms.

KYB 1927, 29, 31, 38 and 40 – Charnley’s Pictures.

KYB 1942, 44, 47, 54, and 57 – Victoria Cinema.

For the latter two names, the address is Victoria Hall, Eanam Bridge.

As shown in the fire brigade ladder photo, the cinema was labelled ‘Victoria’ when subsidence forced its closure and demolition.
