Tickets for all screenings for the November festival are available here……
In early 2018 the building was sold by owners Northern Estates at auction and is now owned by a local Asian business man. The building has been leased to a local community group who have now reopened the building for use community reach for the last two months with various small scale events and workshops etc. In October there will be a series of film screenings as part Black History Month and in late November, Kinofilm, Manchester International Short Film Festival will be running it’s annual film festival from the theatre. For details please contact the writer of this message, as we will do an opening day during the festival for those interested to see in side the building again. John.
I just wonder whether there is anything remaining of this theatre in the upper disused floors?
Adam at mrg231287 – do you think you could contact me please as I am also in Manchester. john.kino “AT” good.co.uk
Well i used to know the guy who last ran this cinema (into the ground), he did the same with a cinema he ran here in Manchester, and in Buxton and in Hyde. Ran them all into the ground from what I remember. Nice cinema this and would be nice to help get it open again.
Has anyone in the UK still got any workable 35 machines for sale.
Did you have any luck renting out the cinema??
Ammendment: In June I wrote that demolition had started. As it turned out I noticed two weeks later that they hadn’t started demolition at all, they took down the canopy outside and screened of the front of the building with advertising hoarded for the new building that will replace it. Apparently the, the new owners will not start demolition untill they have sold all the spaced for the proposed office block. That’s the story as far as I understand. Will post a photo of how it looks now.
As of this day demolition crew is moving in now, shame that this has happened but with no active group to save this once finest Paramount Theatre, it was only a matter of time. Great loss and manchester’s last remaining original cinema building in the city will be gone in a couple of months or so.
The Palace was actually put up for sale in October 06 and was taken of the market in Janaury 07 after the owner Jeremy powell’s circumstances changed and he decided to carry on running the cinema. It’s future under Jeremy is now saved. WEll done Jeremy.
does any one know what is going to happen to this fab cinema. I believe Gala Bingo are now moving out! Is the building going to be knocked down or is there any chance of saving it. I would like to view the cinema before anything happens to it. Does anyone have contact details of the owners?
That is indeed good news. I visited this cinema once about 20 years ago on a visit to Amsterdam and the Arnhem Art house cinema.
Have the plans maintened the opening of the cinema? Is it still running art house? Do you have any more information since this posting.
does anyone know who the agents are for this cinema and if it is still unused and empty?

has there been any further news of this building since this posting?

I was very interested in reading about it . looks like it was a real nice cinema once. I’m curious as to what is happenning with it now. There seems to be no way of contacting you direct on this site. Can you reply to me please at
