The site of the Arcade Cinema, 2004
The site of the Arcade Cinema, 2004. The cinema opened in1912 but only ran until the1930's when it was purchased by the Gaumont British Picture Co. and closed. The Gaumont cinema opened shortly afterwards in Foregate Street as a replacement. Today the building houses a part of Superdrug although it has been stripped of its original decorative features leaving it as an unrecognisable descendent of the cinema.
