According to media reports, some locals are objecting to plans to build a four story block in place of the Stella Cinema. They claim that they need measures to deal with alleged asbestos in the roof structure of the former cinema during any demolition exercise.The replacement building would provide apartments upstairs.

That’s too bad. It looks like it was a nice little neighborhood theater.

Planning permission has been applied for to demolish the Stella, and replace it with apartments and some retail units. I intend to contact the developers in order to possibly photograph the interiors before this happens.
