The Grand, sited close to Bridge Foot, was Warrington’s first cinema and attracted a loyal following of film fans.
Opened in 1913 as The Grand Electric Theatre, it was re-named New Grand Cinema from 13th November 1922. Taken over by the Associated British Cinemas(ABC) chain in December 1930, Western Electric sound equipment was installed and it was re-named New Grand Super Cinema.
ABC sold the cinema to a group of local businessmen in 1940, and as the Grand Cinema, it was closed by them in March 1952 when the final film was “Fury of the Congo”. It was demolished to widen the road and the bridge.
The name was meant to be.
The Grand offers guests world-class cocktails, Fine wines and Craft Beers.
