Harworth is a village in Nottinghamshire, approximately 8 miles north of Worksop. The Cinema House was opened on 24th March 1930 with Al Jolson in “The Singing Fool”. Seating was provided for 1,020. It was owned by Reginald I. Kemp. It was equipped with a Marshalls sound system and there was a small stage and two dressing rooms. In 1935 alterations to the screen end of the building were drawn up by architect Alfred John Thraves, and were approved by Worksop Town Council. The seating capacity was reduced to 852-seats.

The actual owner was Cinema House (Harworth) Ltd. The Marshall sound system was replaced by a British Thomson Houston (BTH) system in 1937.

By 1951 it was operated by the Leeds based Star Cinemas chain. After a fairly uneventful life, the Cinema House was closed on 8th October 1960 with Anita Ekberg in “Sign of the Gladiator. It was converted into the Q & S Snooker Club.

A Google Street View search indicates that the building has been demolished.
