It is interesting to compare this with the similar b/w photos. This, colour, view shows how the rebuilding after the 1932 fire left intact the front block (foyers, stairs and projection room) and rear block (stage and dressing rooms); and a much wider auditorium was (re)built in between.

The blue-ish, two-storey building on the right was tagged on by ABC when this building served as their Didsbury/Manchester studios. The chequered fa├žade of light and darker blues is an echo of the style adopted for their make-over/rebuild of the Hippodrome Blackpool (reopened as the ABC Blackpool).
