About the Pub

Cinema cafe-bar open to the public, situated on two floors but real ale is only available in the ground level bar. Broadway Reel Ale is brewed for the Broadway (not a re-badge), and is rarely found elsewhere. Guest beers are also normally from Nottingham Brewery. Food is served all day, which is predominantly vegetarian.

Historic Interest

Now an iconic cinema, the Broadway site has a fascinating history. In the foyer is a plaque to former apprentice pawnbroker William Booth. The building was the Wesleyan Chapel and Booth was inspired by a preacher to devote his life to helping the poor. He moved to London and, in 1878, founded the Salvation Army. During the inter-war years the chapel's Sunday School and Boys’ Brigade company flourished. However, in 1947 the chapel struggled with the cost of a new roof and dwindling congregations led to closure in 1954. The building was bought by Nottingham Co-operative Society. Their aim was to turn it into the country’s first Co-operative Educational Centre, complete with 500-seat theatre space and 35mm and 16mm projection facilities. In 1957 the Nottingham & District Film Society merged with the Nottingham Co-operative Film Society. The newly formed Film Society began running monthly screenings of international and archive films in the auditorium of the Co-operative Educational Centre, which finally opened in 1959. In the same year, the Film Society began discussions with the British Film Institute (BFI) about gaining official status as a Regional Film Theatre. On 22 September 1966 the Nottingham Film Theatre opened its doors to the public – the first in a wave of Regional Film Theatres to be established around the UK in the late 1960s and early 1970s. With BFI sponsorship it began screening films three days a month. Broadway Cinema was born out of a consortium of four local media organisations: Nottingham Film Theatre; New Cinema Workshop; Midland Group; and Nottingham Video Project. With support from the BFI, East Midlands Arts, Nottingham City Council and Nottinghamshire County Council, the building became the Broadway Cinema and had its first screening (Enemies - A love Story) on 31st August 1990. BUILDING DEVELOPMENT The Broadway building has changed a lot since it opened as a regional film theatre in the 1960s. The building was originally split between the chapel, which housed the cinema, and the church house, where the admin offices were. A New York-style alleyway ran between the buildings, and apparently a homeless man slept on the fire escape. Screen 1 had 534 seats, none of which were very comfortable. The first screening as Broadway Cinema was on 31 August 1990. Since then, it has benefited from over £8 million of redevelopment funding. In 1992 the foyer was improved, disabled access added, and screen 2 opened. The window in the wall of the CaféBar was created so that people coming out of screen 2 would see the bar in all its glory and be tempted to stay for a post-cinema drink. Towards the end of the 90s, low-cost office space was leased to artists and filmmakers. October 2006 saw the opening of screen 3, screen 4 (designed by regular patron Sir Paul Smith) and the Mezzanine bar and lounge, as well as additional work and education facilities (http://www.broadway.org.uk/history) The Broadway is in Nottingham City Council's Lace Market Conservation Area.
