@ FanaticalAboutOdeon .. Yes I know what you mean. Alas its been a long time since I last visited the Theatre Which is what I would call a semi Royal premier. With the Duchess of Kent as guest of Honour. with Myself sitting right behind her. Thankfully she did not block the view.. (These people that drop names. Get on my nerves.. as I said to the Queen the other day.. :@) Hmm. I wonder if I could use my Cinema Veterans Pass on an Afternoon Matinee :o)

For me. I believe the interior is the most important part of the building The extorior is ok for those that never went inside any cinema..

Studying the picture. I think the building was extended.. The Original Lenth I think was to the Exit on the Left.. (6 Bays) We did a similar thing to Our Cinema in Birmingham England… (The Capitol) in 1929

With Getting rid of Spectacular Auditoriums.. There is little point in watching a Major Film in an “Airing Cupboard” Hmm I find watching Films at home on my 7" screen (LCD projection system)has as much impact.. To-days Cinema Owners have just lost the plot.. Alas gone of they days of “Showman Management” Now they are Sweetshops that just happen to show films out the back…. Progress ALL RUN BY LITTLE MEN… :O(

The Stage house seems to have been demolished. The very fine Ronald Satchwell Art Deco interior was totaly destoryed. I live not far from this theatre..
