    On the weekend the place closed I dropped in to visit the soon to be unemployed projection staff, who over the last 15 years or so have become good mates of mine. I took a few photos round the projection room.

    Some background on the Alan Park.

    Opened 5th October 1938, seating 1700. Built for Stirling Cinema & Variety Theatres Ltd. Designed by Sam Runcie ARIAS.
    Later acquired by Caledonian Associated Cinemas in 1969, and twinned (approx 2x300 seats) in 1977 by dividing balcony in half with a false ceiling over front of stalls which are now used for bingo.
    Bought in late 1990s by Carlton Bingo who own numerous Bingo halls; this is their only cinema operation. It continued showing films until closure on Sunday 20th April, 2008.

    Every cinema report MUST have a Magnarc, it's the law.

    Despite being an old cinema, this place was pretty well equipped.

    The all important kludgie shot. I've used this convenience on many a service visit.

    Says it all, sadly.

    Rest are here
