The Guardian reports that planning permission has now been granted for refurbishment of the cinema plus the addition of an additional screen in the basement.

The link can be found via the Cinema Theatre Association Facebook page.

The original edwardian proscenium arch and some ornate plasterwork on the walls still exists in relatively good condition behind the current screen.

The official histories of this theatre state that it was converted from a 1908 hotel in 1914, which I find hard to believe. The structure in 2007 presents NO evidence that it was ever anything but a cinema. I would have expected to see blocked up windows and doors, but there is no trace of this in the external walls of the auditorium. If it was a hotel before, then it must have largely been demolished. Internally too, there is no evidence that this was ever anything but a purpose built cinema.

I first saw this cinema in a quirky goosey (!) feature film called ‘Laughterhouse’ , made about 1986 and written by Brian Glover , starring, Ian Holm
