I worked here as a manager between 1987 – 1993 It was never a triple screen, throughout the forum and talkies days, in 1993 screen 2 was sub let to laser quest and screen one was partitioned to make 2 smaller screens. The projection equipment was Phillips and worked with cake stand platters, screen 2 was replaced by a kayley machine after it died, this was shipped over from bentleys at burton latimer when Ashley closed it, Kettering Ohio cinema lasted until the odeon opened in the town but the lease by that time had been sold to Brian mcfarlane who ran the old place until the bitter end. Corby cinema through the 80’s and early 90’s had a great atmosphere, it was local and a cheap night out, 2 films for 2 quid, now that was a bargain.

I loved this cinema! Have very fond memories of watching some very cool 90’s movies here. It may have been crappy and falling apart, but that just added to its original character, something you don’t find anymore with these franchise multiplex chain cinemas. I’ll never forget watching Tommy Boy (1995) here, in a mostly empty screening, made me fall in love with the cinema and Chris Farley who was also taken away from us too early a few years later. RIP Talkies, RIP Chris Farley.
