Bristol Index

The Bedminster Hippodrome Theatre, on East Street, Bristol was built by Bertie Crewe in 1911.

The Theatre was converted into a Cinema, Stoll's Picture Theatre, in 1915.

The Bistol Evening News of May the 22nd 1915 carried details of a film called 'Bristol's Own' to be shown at the Bedminster Hippodrome by the manager Mr Sumpter, which was a film about the Gloucester 12th Battalion filmed on the Downs that morning. The advertisement claimed that 'All the men and officers are recognisable." This information discovered at Clifton Rugby Football Club History.

The Theatre was bombed during the Second World War in 1941.

There are two pictures showing part of the Bedminster Hippodrome in the early 1920s, and the site now, here...
