In the Kinematograph Year Book for 1947, the Myrtle had 900 seats. Prices ranged from 10d to 2/6; pricier than the Hippodrome which was charging 6d to 1/6 at the time. The KYE for 1954 gives the prices as 7d to 2/7; the Hippodrome was a branch of Woolworth’s by then. In 1954 the screen at the Myrtle was 16ft6 by 12ft6.
