Previous Names: La Salon Cinema
Opened as La Salon Cinema on October 2nd, 1913 in a tenement block of buildings currently Grade A listed. The auditorium was built at the rear of the tenement block and the cinema boasted a first class orchestra and a tea room. It had a Persian theme down to staff uniforms earned the cinema the nickname “The Harem”. It had a 26 feet wide proscenium, a six feet deep stage and two dressing rooms.
Closed as a cinema in November 1974, proprietor E.D. Lonie turned the Salon Cinema into a bar. The auditorium was demolished in late-1978 but the front was still visible after being boarded up with the name Salon still visible in 1981, when I took a photograph.
The entrance is still boarded over in 2014.
