History

The cinema began life as the Broad Street Wesleyan Church,

Since the 1960s Broadway has housed the Co-operative Education Centre, Nottingham Film Society, City Lights Cinema and, in 1982, the Broadway Cinema.

In 2006 Broadway went through a major development with funding from the National Lottery and the Arts Council.

Between 1998 and 2008, Broadway hosted a series of festivals on British Silent Cinema, in conjunction with the British Film Institute. In 2009, this festival moved to the Barbican Centre in London.
