- CINEMA (Modern - 1921 AD to 1967 AD)
The Victory opened in 1921 - a large, modern cinema. It was re-vamped and re-opened in 1938 as 'The New Victory'. By the late fifties the cinema was considered dated compared to its rivals (the Empire and Odeon). It closed suddenly in 1967 and was demolished.
The building was replaced by a supermarket - this building is apparently still standing, split into several shop units. Information from http://www.merciacinema.org/gallery0305.htm (accessed 17/02/2010).
