Or more this one..
Irving Theatre/ Embassy Club
Situated in Victoria Road (later to become Borough Road in 1914) stands a typical ornate Edwardian building - the Irving Theatre. It was built on a site previously occupied by Hope House and its gardens, for Mr. James Kiernan who had a growing empire of theatres. On 11th October 1899 the distinguished actor Sir Henry Irving laid the cornerstone of the building and agreed for his name to be associated with the building for as long as it was used for serious theatre. The grand opening took place on Monday, 18th December 1899 with a performance of 'The Sign Of The Cross' by a cast of over sixty performers. Mr J.H. French became the manager of the theatre.

Zipper it looks like the original poster is from Birkenhead so may not know where Seacombe ends and Egremont starts. As the apollo was our last one to close I can only think it was that one.

There was the Royal in King Street opposite the garage.The Old Court Cinema on Liscard Road near Clarendon Road /Liscard Road Junction. The Irving Theatre in Borough road which became La Scala then the Embassy Luxury Theatre. There was Vienna Hall on the corner of Brighton street and Vienna street, the Marina in Brighton Street, the Queens in Poulton road That eventually became a supermarket.

Hope that helps you smile
