Grosvenor Picture Theatre

Located in the Kirkdale district in the north of Liverpool. The Grosvenor Picture Theatre was opened 14th August 1922 with Peggy Hyland in “Persuasive Peggy”. Seating was provided on a stadium plan, with a raised stepped section at the rear instead of an over-hanging balcony. It was operated by the Liverpool based W. Gordon circuit.

From May 1933 it was taken over by the Regent Cinemas circuit (part of Associated British Cinema(ABC)), and in March 1938 it was taken over by the Liverpool based Regent Enterprises Ltd. circuit. They were taken over by the Southan Morris chain of S.M. Super Cinemas, which passed to the Newcastle based Essoldo chain in October 1954.

The Grosvenor Picture House was closed on 31st August 1963 with Kerwin Matthews in “Warrior Empress” and Jack Lemmon in “The Wackiest Ship in the Army”.
