SD4761NE MARKET STREET
1685-1/7/156 (South side)
Cinema and cafe, now shop. c1918, converted c1985.
Steel-framed with grey terracotta facade. Baroque Revival
style. Deep rectangular plan.
3 storeys and 3 bays. The entrance and shop windows on the
ground floor are deeply recessed behind 4 Tuscan columns, of
which the outer 2 are engaged; above each column, on the
architrave, is a small cartouche. The first and second floors
are articulated by 4 rusticated pilasters, with lion masks
near their bases, which carry a modillion cornice and blocking
course. The windows are paired in the central bay and single
in the outer bays; they are sashed and have stained glass. On
the first floor they have moulded architraves with tall
keystones. On the second floor they have plain reveals; the
outer ones have a tall keystone, but the central one has a
triple keystone and is shorter, since its sill is placed above
a tall apron which is decorated by a swagged cartouche. The
top of the right-hand side wall retains traces of a painted
sign which reads: 'PICTURES', 'CAFE'. The facade makes an
important contribution to the streetscape.
HISTORY: built as the Palladium Cinema, and now the oldest
surviving purpose-built cinema building in the town.
