The Cannon Group didn’t take over this, and all the remaining Island cinemas until the mid 80’s. The bingo finished here in 1987 during Cannon’s ownership.It remained the Picturedrome up until it’s closure on the 17th Feb 2000 with the final films being “House on haunted hill” and “American beauty”

According to the caption accompanying this photo, the cinema was later known as the Studio after the stalls became a bingo hall.
