It wasn’t the largest cinema in Liverpool when it opened. In 1932 an official count of the seats revealed that they were less than had been originally claimed. There was a total of 1,912 seats, 1,552 in the stalls and 660 in the balcony. This still made the Carlton the second largest purpose-built cinema in Liverpool at the time (after the Commodore in Bankhall with 1,966 seats). When the Paramount in the city centre opened in 1934 with 2,670 seats, the Carlton became the third largest.

Scaffolding was put up to commence demolition but as of January 2017 all the scaffolding has been removed.So looks like its reverted to its status as Liverpools most derelict cinema.

Thanks for adding this cinema today, Ken.

Scroll down to page 15 to see a vintage photo of the auditorium with the “leaping stags” on the original screen curtains, as Ken describes.
