We visited this cinema in August 2014 to watch a movie. The division for the second screen seems to have been very well done. We were in the old balcony, and it was great being so close to all the original ceiling decoration.
Visited this cinema this evening. Now part of the Merlin Chain. Lovely little cinema, friendly staff.
The interior was extensively renovated for the centenary, opening out the foyer and opening up the Oak Room and the top floor to the public again. There is a viewing panel on the top floor onto the balcony which is still there, just a bit the worse for wear.
A fully working “plumbed in” Christie organ was also installed, which is used regularly before evening shows and for concerts.
The next job is to get the balcony fully restored.
