Ian commented about Cineworld at the Empire Theatre on Jul 29, 2016 at 6:50 am

The main screen at the Haymarket Carlton is one of the most attractive in the West End now, but there are lots of unused areas in the building that could have small screens squeezed into them, and the two lower screens could be rebuilt without loss.

Looks like a rebrand – wonder what will happen to the Haymarket cinema?

Ian commented about Odeon Haymarket on Jun 5, 2016 at 2:54 am

Actually looking at photos, could this plasterwork be from the even earlier Capitol Cinema (1925)? The 1937 Gaumont was a bit more streamlined. Perhaps the back of the boxes?

Two photos of the gutted auditorium taken in 2015 when the space was being used as a temporary canteen. Interestingly there seems to be quite a bit of plasterwork remaining from the previous Gaumont – possibly from a corridor, possibly the auditorium, it is a bit difficult to place!

Hull Screen closed after a spell at the Reel in July 2014, having begun screenings there in September 2009.

Ian commented about Hull Screen on May 17, 2016 at 9:19 am

Hull Screen on George Street closed 2008, for a while performances transfered to The Reel Cinema in the St Stephens Centre, but this proved not successful and Hull Screen ceased in July 2014.

I am not 100% sure but I think the above photo looks like the Hull Screen at the Library Theatre, not the Uni of Lincoln site.
