The property was built as a large and luxurious Granada Cinema, which opened in 1937 with a seating capacity of nearly 2,500. The theatre’s stunning interior, with its gothic sensibilities, designed by the Russian theatrical director and designer, Theodore Komisarjevsky, saw it labelled as the “most romantic theatre ever built”. The property was converted into a bingo hall in 1980s, which then closed in 2011, and is now occupied by a religious organisation.
