Located in the Manchester inner-city district of Hulme. Situated on Chapman Street (later re-named Cossack Street). The Chapman Street Chapel was converted by architect John Knight into the Popular Picture Palace in 1913. It had a rather long, narrow auditorium, with a horseshoe shaped balcony. In late-1928/early-1929 alterations were carried out to the plans of architect Peter Cummings, which included a new Art Deco style façade. It was was equipped with a British Thomson-Houston(BTH) sound system and reopened as the New Popular Picture House.
The New Popular Picture House was closed on 7th January 1961 with David Tomlinson in “Follow That Horse!” & Jill Adams in “Dust in the Sun”. The building was demolished in the whole-sale regeneration of the area, which obliterated Cossack Street so it no longer exists today.
