    Visited with Gone and Appo.

    Another location that has been on my list for quite sometime. Always knew this place was something special. Would highly recommend a visit to anyone.

    Info

    Built in 1930 to the designs of architects Frank T. Verity & Samuel Beverley for Paramount Theatres.

    Verity & Beverley were Paramount's chosen architects for their UK enterprise. They were also responsible for the Paramount Leeds, Paramount Newcastle-on-Tyne, Paramount Glasgow, Paramount Liverpool, Paramount Birmingam and Paramount, Tottenham Court Road, London. Their architect's practice continues today as Verity-Beverley.

    Originally containing 2,920 seats, the Paramount Manchester was the largest of Manchester's picture palaces to survive as a cinema.

    In 1939 the Paramount circuit was obtained by Odeon. It was twinned in 1973, triplexed in 1979 with a further four screens created in 1992.

    The cinema was closed in September 2004 due to competition from the AMC Great Northern 16, which had opened nearby in.
    With the cinema not being a listed building, demolition has started inside and plans have been unveiled for a 14 storey office block to stand in its place.
