Located in the Lincolnshire seaside town of Skegness. Originally built in 1882 as a sea water swimming baths, with separate pools for men & women plus a Turkish bath. Around 1900 mixed bathing was allowed, and the ladies swimming pool was boarded over and converted into the King’s Hall. By May 1911 it had become the King’s Theatre, a cine-variety theatre, with films being screened on Friday & Saturday evenings. It had a stage 34ft wide and 27ft deep.

It received a direct hit by German bombers in 1943 and was badly damaged. The building was taken over by the Nottingham based United Entertainments chain and they were still the owners in 1953, but it was never repaired or reopened. It was eventually demolished and the site is now a car park.
