Description:The Albert Cinema opened in May 1912 in a former rag and bone warehouse on Crabbery Street. It closed three years later.

In 1919 the building was converted into a repertory theatre and remained as such until 1932 when it reopened as a cinema, known locally as the 'Flea Pit'.

The Albert Cinema closed in 1952, and by 1963 the building had become the premises of the Stafford and Stone Co-operative Society.
