Nottingham Queens 9317

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 and foyer appear to predate the cinema auditorium. Given its use since 1955, and the decay of the building, there is unlikely to be much left of the cinema inside.
