This small, short-lived cinema opened in 1920 at 125 Above Bar Street, on the corner of (the later) Civic Centre Road and opposite the Clock Tower that formerly stood at the Junction of Above Bar and New Road (now on Bitterne Park Triangle), from which it took its name. The building had previously housed offices of the London and South Western Railway Co., but was originally the showroom of Aslatt's coach building firm. It was operated by a father and son team, both named Hector Young. It closed in 1923.
