Previously operated by: J.F. Emery Circuit
Located in Westbury, Wiltshire. The Vista Cinema was opened in November 1920. Around 1930 it was equipped with an AWH sound system. The owner Mr. C. Rowe took over the Palace Cinema in Warminster. The Vista Cinema was operated by C. Rowe until 1948, when it was taken over by the J.F. Emery Circuit of Manchester. They operated it until 1955.
The Vista Cinema received second run Pathe News cross overs, from the Cardiff Vaults, in the early-1960’s. It was later independently operated and began part-time bingo in the early-1970’s, going over to full time bingo before 1980.
In late-1988, the building was damaged by fire and only the facade remained standing. It has since been demolished and a block of flats named Vista Court now stand on the site.
