Most of the Tower was an emergency staircase for the projection box and taking a flow from the Ballroom. The Clock was a slave type ran from the Managers Office

What about the tower- the most prominent feature?. Has the space inside being used for any purpose?

My Grandfather, Ernest, Ralph, Adams, built and owned the Majestic cinema in King’s Lynn, working closely with the architects in it’s design. He bought the interior of the Empire Theatre, Leicester Square, London, before it was demolished. The wonderful mirrors and panelling from which were restored before being fitted into the Majestic. He later became a Director of both Union and ABC Cinemas.

Correction to above text – a wall was not dropped to the front of the balcony, a horizontal sub-divison at balcony level took place to create the two cinemas in the original auditorium.
