This Grade II* listed Art Deco cinema and theatre building was designed by the cinema architect W H Watkins, opening in 1934. It was converted into a bingo club in the 1960s and then into a Christian centre in the 1980s when the interior was restored by Nicholas Stubbs architects. It has since been renamed The Forum and is operated as a music and entertainment venue and is the home of Life Church Bath, formerly known as Bath City Church.
