Premier Cinema Theatre

Located in the north Bristol district of Horfield. The Premier Cinema Theatre was opened in April 1914. It had 550 seats in the stalls and 100 seats in the balcony, and was designed by Bristol architect W.H. Watkins.

In 1927 it was enlarged to give a total seating capacity for 980. In 1930 it was equipped with a Western Electric(WE) sound system. In 1955, the proscenium was widened to 35 feet and it was equipped with CinemaScope. The Premier Cinema Theatre was closed in 1964.

It was then used as a warehouse for a firm of builders merchants. In recent years it has been converted into a supermarket for Somerfield, and in 2014 it is a Co-Operative Food Store.
