Previously, Burnside had its own cinema on Stonelaw Road, the Rhul Cinema. Built in 1932 by the Burnside Picture House Company, the cinema was sold to ABC in 1936 and later demolished in 1960.[1][2] The space was until recently occupied by the Somerfield store. The Somerfield site has now been purchased by Tesco who completed a comprehensive redevelopment of the store in 2010.
