It’s continuing successfully as the Bucaneer pub upstairs with the stalls area being used by Smarts Wholesale fruit and veg. traders. I went to one of the last performances – “reverse” rake seating I assume is where the seating seems to go down then goes up? Well we’ve got that at the new Forum Cinema in Bridlington in No.1 auditorium – the nearest neighbour to the old Grand cinema in Filey.

I visited this cinema regularly during the 90’s. Each alternate row of seating in the stalls had been removed reducing the seating capacity but creating more legroom. The stalls also had reverse rake seating. Was this the last cinema to operate in the UK with reverse rake seating.
