County Playhouse

County Playhouse
Construction began on the 1,070 seat County Playhouse in 1916 for Eagle Picturedrome Company to the design of W. Ellis from St Helens, although due to a shortage of materials and labour during World War I, it was not completed until 1919. Having survived a major fire in 1949, the cinema closed on Sunday 13th November 1966 with Disney’s 'The Sword and the Stone'. It was taken over by the Leeds Based Star Cinemas chain and they converted it into Star Bingo and Social Club. The building has since been used as a discount store and Playhouse Club Café and is currently the 1,200 capacity Pure Nightclub.
