  1. The building featured in November’s Quiz has been called many things since it was built in 1890 (Market Street), including Lyric Hall, Operetta House, Central Hall and Central Cinema, but the most popular name was “Cheetham’s”. The Grand Opening of the Lyric Hall took place on Whit Monday 1890. An advertisment for the show in the Rhyl Record and Advertiser on June 7th promised “Comedy! Farce! Comic Songs! Laughable Sketches!”

    The Central Hall was opened as Rhyl’s first cinema in 1906, by Mr Arthur Cheetham, the film pioneer. This from Rhyl Record and Advertiser May 26th, 1906:

    Central Hall, Market Street. Grand Opening with the SILVOGRAPH animated pictures. 150 presents given away to the first persons purchasing tickets on the opening day. Front seats 1s, Second seats 6d, Back and Gallery 3d.
