Letchworth Cinema

A picture on the past

By Matthew Smith

Original plans for the cinema

Broadway Cinema is not your average multiplex.

While towns across the land are plagued by homogenised chain cinemas, Letchworth has a very distinctive character building that oozes with class.

Built in 1930 to replace the original cinema from 1909, the art deco design houses a now fully modernised digital projector which gives cinema-goers the opportunity to see all the latest flicks.

The doors first opened on 26 August 1936 with a memorable showing of ‘Follow the Feet’, which featured Fred Astair and Ginger Rogers.
