According to the Facebook page the local council which borrowed money to knock it down and will have to pay back £4.5 Million all so they can have a “SMALL” car park have “RUN OUT OF MONEY”. They can no longer afford to demolish it.

Also there are problems with the adjoining buildings who are worried about the party wall, and the company which owns the telecom equipment on the roof has not found another suitable location yet.OOPs

On my local East Midlands news, a group want to save this cinema and reopen it. The council has granted permission for it to be demolished for a “car park”. Expect news soon of a “suspicious” fire and the building having to be knocked down.

The building is currently being converted into a restaurant and nightclub. The ground floor and the former cafe' are to be come restaurants accessed from the Guild Street entrance.The nightclub is being built in the circle area of the cinema,this will be accessed from a new entrance that will use the original Façade at the rear of the building and use the stage area.

Any original plaster work that will be on show is to be repainted. The plans show some of the plaster work will be boxed in.I have included some photos of the ongoing work.

I have just uploaded a new photo showing the Gaumont as her new life as a restaurant.They even refurbished the centenary of cinema plaque on the front of the building. Although I have not seen many pictures of the new insides, from the revised planning details I found on line they have only used the ground floor.

The fibreglass bust that has sat on the front of the building for around 15 years has been sold by the owners.They have also sold the Zanzibar letters and stars from the canopy. All the money raised is going too a local charity.

Apparently this closed around six months ago. At the weekend someone made a report too the police as they thought the place had been broken into, when they got there they found someone had set up a cannabis farm. www.thisisderbyshire.co.uk
