Westgarth Theatre

The Westgarth went over to screening Greek language films from November 1966 and this continued until 1987 when the independent art house circuit Valhalla took over and re-named it the Valhalla Cinema. It became a popular cinema to see cult classics and silent films.

In 1996 Valhalla terminated their lease and it reverted back to the Yiannoudes family who had operated if since ‘going Greek’ in 1966. It went back to its Westgarth Theatre name and continued to operated on a diet of First-run and art house releases.

In the summer of 2006 the art house chain: Palace Cinemas took over the building and they proceeded to sub-divide the auditorium, leaving the stalls intact, but making the circle into two small screens - Notes Ken Roe
