Nuvic Cinema

Located in Settle, Yorkshire, this was the only purpose-built cinema in the town. It was owned by local people; the Graham family. The other cinema in the market town was the Kirkgate Kinema in the former Victoria Hall (a former music hall); which explains the choice of name: Nuvic Cinema. (The Kirkgate Kinema/Victoria Hall has its own page on Cinema Treasures)

The 440-seat Nuvic Cinema was opened in 1937. It had a 21ft wide proscenium and an Imperial sound system. Kine Year Book of 1954 has 380 seats and British Acoustic sound.

With the decline in attendances in the late-1960’s, the Nuvic Cinema owners converted the premises to a roller-skating rink. Eventually the Co-op acquired and extended the property and operate it as a supermarket.

My father, Alfred Busfield, used to be a projectionist here in the 1950s, I used to be an excellent roller skater as I had unlimited use of the rink, I remember it being installed.
