The Albion Picture Palace opened on 31st January 1927 and became part of the Associated British Cinemas(ABC) circuit in June 1932. It was an early disposal, going to Star Cinemas chain in 1957 who were responsible for tripling the cinema becoming Studios 1-3, with screen 1 in the former circle with 350 seats, and screens 2 and 3 in the former stalls with 110 and 100 seats.

It was taken over by the Cannon Cinemas chain and renamed Cannon, but closed in April 1987. It was later converted to a nightclub.
