It was definitely rebuilt, though how long it lasted as a cinema I can't say because I only remember it as John Blundels warehouse that all the tally men used. As far as I am aware the building is still standing today.

In the 50's the Green Lane Cinema was also known as the Sit and Scratch. I used to go to its Saturday childrens shows. Some very good (to me then) serials. Otherwise it seemed to specialise in H-certificate films.
