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?
The cinema is now run as a Community Interest Company, improvement works are scheduled later this year, including replacing some seats. Photographs from June 2016:–
AUDITORIUM TO SCREEN
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!

The Olympia HAS now been completely demolished. The facade was not retained.
Hull Screen closed after a spell at the Reel in July 2014, having begun screenings there in September 2009.
