This was indeed already closed and gutted when Cineworld took over.

They were so unsure of the success of this multiplex that included in the specification for the design was the ability to convert it to a supermarket! It was initially a big hit, although lamentably plain as these images show. The poor raking and high screens (note the exit doors below) made for less than ideal viewings :–

This was one of the first closures of a UK multiplex.
