Located on the northern side of Park Road, about 100 yards along from the junction of Manchester Road. The Park Road Cinema was opened on 22nd July 1922 with Charlie Chaplin in “A Gamble in Lives”. It was built for and designed by architect Ernest H. Dawson of Manchester. All seating was on a single level.
In 1932, after Western Electic sound was installed, it was re-named the Western Talkie Theatre.
The Western Talkie Theatre was closed on 14th January 1961 with Glenn Ford in “The Sheepman” and Denny Miller in “Tarzan and the Ape Man”. The building was later demolished with the wholesale redevelopment of the area and the widening of Manchester Road.
