I was chief projectionist at the Grand from 1984 to 86 and showed the final film “Santa Claus the movie”. Just thought I`d correct a couple of things; 1. Conversion to three screens; screen one was in the circle and two and three in the stalls. 2.Screen 1 (old circle) was converted to bingo 1983/4 leaving two screens in the old stalls

Buxton High peak also owned “The Regal” which was near by.. That had 621 seats Screen 21' wide. I visited Regal when the Bingowas stripped out.

Originally opened in 1909 as the Grand Theatre & Hippodrome it became the Hippodrome Theatre in 1915. In 1931 it was re-modelled and began cinema use re-named the New Grand Theatre with a seating capacity of 1,758.

The theatre/cinema has now been demolished to make way for housing on the site.
