The seating capacities in the overview at the top of this page need updating, the current numbers (directly taken from Odeon’s website) are:

Screen 1 – 187 seats
Screen 2 – 187 seats
Screen 3 – 84 seats
Screen 4 – 109 seats
Screen 5 – 187 seats
Screen 6 – 108 seats

All auditoria contain Premier seats situated in the middle of the auditorium.

Recall seeing a Superman triple-bill in the old, much larger, screen 3 many years ago. Back in the days when you queued around the block to purchase tickets from the box office on either side of the front foyer immediately prior to the performance you were attending. It had a relatively large curved screen plus curtain tabs. Screens 2 & 3 were very small and even as a child seemed not much bigger than a home projector screen!

Although the exterior is in good shape the interior is a typically botched Odeon conversion with sound bleeds from the circle minis into the cinemas below…avoid !!

Still open in 2010. A shot from 1986 here:–

There seems to be a stage and extensive dressing room accommodation at the rear in this shot.

the lease runs out on the building later this year and the site is scheduled for demolition to be replaced by shops, a huge shame as its a great deco exterior
