The Glynn Picture Hall opened June 19, 1911 with “Sixtus the Fifth”, and had a half-timbered facade. It was operated by the Glynn Animated Picture Co. who also operated the Glynn Cinemas in Wrexham and Shrewesbury.
It was taken over by General Theatre Corporation(GTC) in March 1928 (they later were taken over by the Gaumont British Theatres circuit). The Glynn Cinema closed on 5th September 1931 with “Lure of the South Seas”. It was replaced by the citys' new Gaumont Palace Cinema. The Glynn Cinema was never fitted out for talkies.
The building was converted into retail use and this lasted until April 1995. It is now home to a bar named Revolution.
