The same church still occupies this building, as far as I can tell from a quick internet search. Makes me wonder if anything of the original interior survives. We are looking at 85 years since it last operated as a cinema, and I find that most of these smaller churches tend to favor a bright and modern finish to their interiors.

By the way, a praiseworthy job of documenting so many older, early cinemas, Ken. As I’m catching up with many of the newer listings you’ve added in recent months, I’m struck by some of the buildings you documented just a few years back that have since been razed. Were it not for your trips abroad, with camera in hand (and at no small expense to yourself, I’m sure) many of these old theatres would have just vanished into the vacuum of history. On behalf of many on this site, thank you so much for your efforts. They are greatly appreciated!
