Aberdeen City boasts many cinema and over the years there has been up to 19 cinemas at one time in 1939. Though many closed as televisions, videos and even DVDs
became readily available. One such example is the Cosmo Cinema which was at Diamond Street, Aberdeen and which closed in 1977.
Several cinemas have stood the test of time and some, like the Vue cinema at the beach have met the needs of a changing population.
The first Aberdeen cinema opened in 1908. It was run by Dove Paterson in the Ship Row and was called The Gaiety Theatre. It is now known as the Vue Cinema Aberdeen.
The first animated picture show in an Aberdeen cinema was a film about the coronation of the Tsar of Russia. It was shown in the Music Hall in September 1896.
The Casino Cinema was located on Wales Street adjacent to the Beach Boulevard and Constitution Lane. The Casino Cinema Aberdeen opened in 1916 and closed in 1959. The Casino Cinema building was demolished in 1971.
The Astoria Cinema was located in the car park and row of shops in Kittybrewster opposite the Aberdeen Northern Hotel. It was open between 1934 and 1967. The Astoria Cinema Aberdeen was one of only two cinemas in Aberdeen to have a theatre organ, the other cinema being the Capitol. In 1967 the Astoria Cinema was turned into a bingo hall but closed four months later.
Torry used to have its own cinema which opened in 1921. The Torry Cinema was located on Crombie Road and closed in 1966.
Aboutaberdeen love to read the historical novels of Doris Davidson that are set in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire. She mentions a Queen's Cinema in the city centre in her novel Time Shall Reap.
There is a photo of the Queen's Cinema at 120 Union Street Aberdeen from 1969 in
The Granite Mile: The Story of Aberdeen's Union Street by Diane Morgan. The building, which dates back to 1836, was originally an Advocates' Hall for the Society of Advocates in Aberdeen until they moved to Broad Street in 1872. Then Lockhart & Salmond the confectioners ran a restaurant in the building until 1882 when it became a Conservative Club. This is when the curved iron balcony was installed. Upstairs were renamed the Queen's Rooms, perhaps in recognition of the 1887 Golden Jubilee and saw a variety of uses such as auction and sales rooms, restaurants, and a billiard saloon.
The building was then converted into the Queen's Cinema and opened in 1913 and sold to James F Donald in 1927. A fire destroyed the interior of this Aberdeen cinema in 1936 and it was refurbished. Queen's Cinema closed in 1981. It was converted into a nightclub and reopened several times as Eagles, Legends and Espionage 007 nightclub.
Doris Davidson also writes about the Majestic Cinema in her book The Girl with the Creel. The Majestic Cinema was on Union Street, Aberdeen.
