Located in the North Yorkshire town of Thirsk. The Gaiety Cinema opened during the 1920’s in Long Street, outside the town centre. It seems possible that it did not pay well enough to convert to sound and the owners might have been led to desperate measures.
It burnt down one night in 1930 but not completely enough to disguise the fact that a highly inflammable 78rpm gramophone record had been placed on every seat!
It subsequently became a garage and is now a tire depot.
