Opened in January 1939, the Brig had a reported 821 seats divided between stalls and circle.
By the mid 1970’s the seating capacity – now listed as 950 – was hopelessly too large for this small seaside resort and the stalls were converted into a bingo hall whilst the circle was extended and became a dual purpose cinema / theater of approximately 300 seats.
The upper project was short lived – the older better located Grand comfortably outclassing its newer rival – and the cinema area became a night club. This too failed and now, still with the basic elements of the cinema / theater intact, it functions as a snooker club.
The bingo hall in the stalls closed in 1989 and this area was stripped back to the bare walls and converted into a fairly tacky indoor market. At ground floor level nothing remains to suggest it was ever a cinema.
