On the 30th of May 1959 Bourne End’s cinema closed for the last time. The Royalty screened films for 25 years since it opened in 1934. Its typical 1930s Art Deco style building still stands on the corner of The Parade and Wakeman Road. After its closure Bourne Enders have had to travel to cinemas in Marlow (until its cinema also closed), Wycombe or Maidenhead.
