I remember attending the “Star” Saturday afternoon matinees in the early 30’s when the admission price was tuppence.Sometimes we were given an apple at the box office and ,occasionally,we would be allowed in by giving an empty jamjar bearing in mind that these fetched tuppence when taken back to the Co-op.
Regarding the fire in 1939 my Father played the drums in a dance hall in the same building when the fire occured.Needless to say all the instruments were lost and,not being insured,he never played the drums again.Derek T.

The Majestic is still located on viaduct street. Majestic Designs only started operating in the 1990’s- before that it was used for car storage for Majestic Motors. I believe the present owners are interested in the history of the building and are happy to show visitors the former cinema should you choose to ‘knock at the door’
