Cinema Apollo

Opened in 1936 or 1937 as the Cine-Teatro Rex. Seating was provided in orchestra and two balcony levels. It was re-named Cinema Apollo in later years and closed in 1986.

After being closed for several years, in around 2005, plans were announced that it would be renovated. This was not to be, and the building stood boarded up until 2014 when work began to convert it into a Mercure Hotel, which opened in 2015.
