Embassy Cinema

The Electric Theatre was opened on 13th August 1910. In 1920 it was re-named Imperial Playhouse. It was equipped with a British Thomson Houston(BTH) sound system around 1930.

In 1935 it was reconstructed to the plans of architectural firm Drury & Gomersall. In 1939 after a refurbishment it was renamed Embassy Cinema and was equipped with a Western Electric(WE) sound system. The Embassy Cinema was closed in September 1947 and was converted into a Littlewood’s store, later demolished to become a branch of Boots the chemists.
