Another warehouse conversion, this cinema started life as a variety theatre called 'Crouche's Theatre of Varieties' in 1881.  It started showing films around 1897, and was fully rebuilt as a cinema in 1913, to seat around 600 patrons. It closed in 1935, and has since been a variety of shops. It's not known if anything of the interior still survives, but look up above the shops and you can still spot its two small square towers on the facade.
