The chap I know who worked there is in his late 80’s now, agrees they never had CinemaScope fitted. I thought perhaps they did as I remember “Lady and the Tramp” being shown at the Gaumont, but it seems Disney made a ‘Scope version and a “normal” version of that film.

I remember going there to see “Mr Pastry” films and Davy Crockett".
Not to sure if I remember an organ being there. I still know a guy who worked there as a projectionist in the 1950’s.
Next time I see him I shall ask about the organ and CinemaScope being installed at the theatre.
The building was white stone outside with steps going up to the entrance doors, you can see a small picture here:
There is a building still standing (2010) left of the petrol station site of the Gaumont which was an early silent cinema.
