here is an ariel shot of the two Cornerhouse buildings taken around 1994 from my office, it was before the glass wall makeover of the main cinema.
in the distance you can see the BBC building and next to it the bulky pitched roof of the Regal Twin (now Dancehouse theatre)

Due to the relaxation of the Licensing Laws in England and Wales which are due to come into force in November 2005, the Cornerhouse Cinemas have become the first cinema in England to be granted a 24 hours Drinking Licence to serve alcoholic drinks 24/7.

Of course making it legal doesn’t mean it will happen and the managment have stated that drinks will be normally only be served during regular cinema operating hours. It’s nice to think you can get a drink at 3am after a late night movie has finished and chat to friends in the cinema bar. Most civilised….and about time too.
