    This was the first new cinema to be built by Rank after WW II

    It opened on 1st February 1960 with the film "Follow A Star" starring Norman wisdom and John Le Mesurier.

    Designed by T.P.Bennet, it had 1244 seats on a single floor in a sloping stadium style and the projector was suspended above the rear stalls almost level to the screen

    In June 1987 it closed and the rear stalls were converted into two smaller cinemas while the main cinema retained the original screen

    The cinema struggled to compete with the new six screen multiplex which opened in 1990 and it finally closed its doors in August 2005

    I know that a few people have been in here but the old access point is now firmly and permanently sealed due to somebody leaving it in a right old state.

    Access is now akin to a scene from "The Great Escape". Nuff said ;)

    Oh and the power is now off, so my pics are flash only I'm afraid
