Ambassador Cinema

Located on Cregagh Road at the corner of Willowholme Parade. The Ambassador Cinema opened on 16th December 1936 with “Charlie Chan in Egypt”, starring Warner Oland, and Francis Lederer in “The Gay Deception”. It was owned by D. D. Young but, as an independent, was unable to acquire the top films. In later years it fought on bravely with a diet of mainly continental sex films, but eventually closed on 4th March 1972. In November 1998, when my photograph was taken, the building was occupied by a branch of the Wyse Byse retail group, which remained in 2012.
