EMBASSY CINEMA (DEVONPORT)

It had been intended by Messrs G E Prance and W Mumford to erect the Embassy Cinema at Milehouse, Devonport, on the eastern side of the hill down to Wolseley Road, almost opposite the Embassy Ballroom.  A sign announcing its coming was even erected on the site.  Apparently it would have had a restaurant and a dance hall. 

However, because of the shortage of steel brought about by the start of the Second World War a new building became out of the question.  Consequently an older one was taken over, the Carlton Theatre at 193 Union Street, Plymouth.
