I used to go up in the projection box in 1969. I remember the broomstick changeover and the old 78s. I think they belonged to the senior projectionist, a guy called Hilton. I also had the hand wound curtain drum and hand moved screen masking for w/s cinemascope.

I have made a short documentary (10 mins) about which can be viewed at

I used to visit it regularly in the early 1970s when it was nearer to it’s original 1930s glory.
