Located in Chorley, Lancashire, on the Flat Iron Parade, aka Cattle Market. The Grand Theatre was a wooden building built in 1885, which presented melodrama’s & plays. In June 1909 it was taken over by George Testo Santo who had been a music hall strongman, and his family. It went over to operating as a ‘Picture Palace’ for a short season. By 1914 it was operating as a full time cinema, but was destroyed by fire in 1914.

The site since 2017 is taken up by an extension of Market Walk Shopping Centre which includes the 6-screen Reel Cinema.
