The Queen’s Cinema opened on either 30th October or 8th December 1915, depending on which source you believe, and was situated adjacent to the Salvation Army Citadel hall. It had 800 seats on benches as of 1935. In 1936 alterations were carried out to the plans of architect John Denis D'Arcy and by 1940 it had 500-seats. It was nicknamed the ‘Cosy’ and served the working classes, but was destroyed by German bombs in the Blitz on 15th April 1941. The immediate area has been widely redeveloped, with the site now occupied by a furniture store, although the Salvation Army Citadel hall is still standing.
