Nottingham Queens 9320

Nottingham, Queens Cinema. Opened as the Midland Electric Bioscope in 1909, renamed Midland Electric Theatre December 1911 and closed in June 1935. Reopened the following year as the Queen’s Cinema and finally closed suddenly on Tuesday 4th January 1955, with the rest of the week’s run cancelled. The auditorium was used as a car showroom and the foyer became a retail unit. Both of these have been closed for some time. The entrance (latterly Ricochet) and foyer appear to predate the cinema auditorium and are possibly part of the Queens Hotel designed by AN Bromley in 1905.
