The Avenue Super Cinema was opened 2nd February 1928
Unfortunately, it was a casualty of the blitz on 12th March 1941
The site was eventually cleared and The Avenue Pub was built there

The Avenue Cinema following the bombing of 12/13 March 1941. The foundations were deemed unsafe so the building was demolished.



The Avenue Pub was built in 1957, and under the post war agreement, it used the licences from the Canada Hotel and the Boar's Head (both of which were bombed).

Cheers Derek. I have to go to Central to take all the kids books back, so I'll look for it there or reserve it whatever's easiest. I thought a few of the houses nearest to the cinema on Norman Street were also bombed? My nan and grandad's house was the only one near the end not deemed unsafe to live in afterwards (no 35).

I spotted that when I went up to my Grandma's the other day... I like the way they've built a bit of a raised seating area out the front... wont feel like we're sat in the car park as much!
Will they be serving local ales?
