This theatre did run pantomimes. It had two proscenium arches, the original one and a later plaster one inserted, further forward, to take the screen curtains when a larger screen was installed for 70mm road shows. This was later taken out of use so that the stage could be used again for pantomimes.This could be seen after bingo took over. It had a Compton organ installation under the stage, that was removed before bingo started. The same staff used to operate the projectors for both this and the Odeon. The bingo staff could relieve those at the Odeon at times before Rank sold-off the bingo halls.

See my photo taken in August 2014. The cinema was still standing, albeit in the process of demolition.

Looks like its being demolished.

I was working in an office nearby and I remember getting free tickets to see Vanishing Point (Barry Newman). How prophetic it turned out!
