Lido Cinema run by Richards & Firth, CinemaScope with Kalee 20s and a glass bead screen (only one in the district!)fitted around 1952/53. Originally a roller skating rink and a live music hall called the Palace.Flat floor but with a “slope” of around 10 rows before a small balcony. Ports so low that people in back row who got up to leave masked off the screen! Originally had its own generator as did the other cinema the Electra. After Bingo and a fire the Lido was demolished and flats have been built on the site.
