The Geraldine Cinema

Built in 1914 as the Municipal Cinema with 450 seats, it is still going well today.

Projectors are a pair of ERNEMANN IIs from the 1920s with ASHCRAFT carbon arc lamphouses, the sound is mono using a old valve amp, the ZEISS- IKON soundheads have just been converted from the old exciter lamps to the new red lazers.

Has been in the ownership of the present owner for over 30 years.
