Homer Cinema

The Homer Cinema was located in the Everton district north of Liverpool city centre. It was designed by the architectural firm Nagington & Shennan, and was very similar to their Seaforth Palladium which was built in 1913.

The Homer Cinema was opened in August 1914, and was independently operated. Around 1935 it was taken over by Regent Enterprises Ltd. and briefly was part of Associated British Cinemas(ABC). In March 1938 it passed to the Southan Morris chain of S.M. Super Cinemas which in 1954 was taken over by the Newcastle based Essoldo chain.

The Homer Cinema was closed on 20th January 1962 with Richard Widmark in "Two Rode Together" and "A Question of Suspense". It was demolished in a redevelopment of the area.
