Theatre Royal on Ainsworth Street

Here is a picture postcard of the original Theatre Royal, which occupied the same spot on Ainsworth Street, that the later theatre occupied. The latter Theatre Royal, built in the late 19th Century, eventually became a ''picture house'' and was then known as the Cinema Royal.

  1. this place was such a lovely place until the bar called cheers bar got put underneath and so with the dinner the should have opened it as somewhere to go and have a look around to see what time use to be back in the days instead of leaving it sat there being destroyed by all the thugs that are around in Blackburn and it rotting then end up falling on someone or getting it knocked down it's such a nice place and brings back good memories.
