Hi Dave nice to hear from you and sorry about the years gap since your comment.
Mary Poppins it was everywhere I went lol.
My email is
It was owned by the Star Group of Leeds in the mid 1960’s for whom I worked as a Mobile Chief Operator.
Visited the cinema a few time when they were short staffed and I remember the frustration of the company at the sight lines.
Unfortunatly I was busy when it reopened after the rebuild and I never go to see how it had changed.
Planning permission has been granted for conversion to a church plus some flats etc.
The hording is still in place and builders accomodation has been installed on land at the rear of the theater.
I visited this cinema in the mid 1960’s when working for the Star Group. I was a group projectionist and the cinema at that time was called the Regal.
Like David I was a Chief Projectionist at the Zetland but only for 2 months in late 1965. I was a mobile projectionist for the Star group and attended when the resident one resigned. I remember it as being a nice country cinema in far better shape than some of the other Star ones.
