    This building is due to be demolished, to be replaced by a larger, state of the art theatre.
    The building was erected in 1837 as the Hope Hall Chapel, then the Anglican church of John the Baptist from 1841 and finally became a public hall in 1853. Converted to the Hope Hall cinema in 1915, as an independent it lasted until July 1959. Surprisingly it re-opened in May 1961, showing alternative films, re-named the Everyman Cinema in December and closed for good in November 1963. The balcony was then extended to provide a stage and it became the Everyman Theatre. In 1977 the frontage was demolished and re-built, but the auditorium was left.
    This was a with permission explore, as photography is normally prohibited due to copyright issues over the stage sets.
