  • <p>The 600 seats of screen 1 seen here occupied a space large enough for over 900 conventional cinema seats of the time.  These, in fact, are from the stalls of the ABC Blackpool which were surplus to requirements following the sad tripling of that venue resulting in the cessation of live shows.</p>
            
              <p>The original Essoldo seats were much more comfortable and were complete with  headrests. ABC sent them back to Essoldo Furnishings in Glasgow as they were becoming ever more cost conscious and the original seats had to be maintained by Essoldo and not ABC’s in house seating, carpeting and upholstery team…………</p>
