It is so sad to see what was once a really nice Cinema unused and falling to pieces. I had a look round it some two years ago. I saw some film running, so everything does work but sadly by today’s standards no one would pay to sit in such a cinema. Everything would need replacing, the sound was good for the 70s but stands no chance these days. The floor only has a gentle slope, people expect to be able to see all the screen these days so a stadium seating plan would be required. The building is slowly rotting away with plaster falls in the projection room. The current owners do not have any plans to do anything with the building.
