Apollo Cinema

Originally built as a chapel in 1889. The building was converted into the Picture Palace, opening in December 1911. As the Picture Palace was a converted chapel, the building was so small that the projection box was constructed outside and beamed films through a window.

Taken over by the Evans family it was renamed Evan Picture Palace, in 1915 it was taken over by George F. Sears and renamed Sears Picture Palace. He soon renamed it Sears Apollo Picture Palace. In 1929 it was taken over by new operators and renamed Apollo Cinema. It was closed by the end of 1931, never having had sound equipment installed.

In 1989 it was converted into housing named Chapel Court.
