Of All The Cinemas I have worked at in 40 years. This was my favorite. I did 6 ½ years as Assitant Manager under Frank W. Attoe. before going to Work for The Birmingham Cinema Owner B.T.Davis becoming his General Manager and Having Cinemas of My Own..

Looking at the photo above of Screen 2, that appears to be the full width of the original cinema, or is the photo very deceptive? So where was screen 3, they cannot both have been in the front stalls surely? Was it perhaps on the stage?
