This was a short lived cinema in an existing hall, open 1912 as Glass's Glorious Bright Pictures.
It was ran by the manager, Herbert Glass who advertised showings twice nightly at " Peoples Popular Prices". 

.

The building has been completely modernised and is now a work shop...


January 2006

 

It is situated in Broad Street near the junction of Orr Street and in fact nearly backs onto the Olympia Cinema at Bridgeton Cross..

Interesting footnote : directly opposite the old picture hall building, where the trees are, there used to be a tenement building and my Granny's sister Rubina Lewis (nee Rankin) lived there with her husband John and family.
