Where did the third screen fit in there?

The Odeon cinema in Bridgewater is still functioning under the ownership of a small independent chain called Scott Cinemas renamed simply as “The Film Centre”. It is now a twin screen cinema.

The Ritz Cinema opened on 13th July 1936 with Binnie Hales in “Hyde Park Corner”. The opening was attended by Binnie Hales and local resident playwright Ben Travers. The original seating capacity of 612 was in stalls and balcony levels. It was built for and operated by the independent Truman Dicken circuit and the opening day coincided with the opening day of the nearby Oscar Deutsch built Odeon Theatre, Bridgewater.

The Ritz did indeed close down in July 2002, but an independent operator bought the cinema and extensive renovations were carried out. It reopened in September 2004 with two screens, digital sound and new projectors and is showing films every day of the week.
