In February 2000, when I visited the Coliseum to see “Inspector Gadget”, the cinema screen was sited the other side of the disco dance floor, viewed over the dance floor from a row of cinema seats. Film shows were held in the early evening, before the disco started! The cinema/disco was at first floor level, and there were no indications of the original cinema auditorium.

On 15 March 2011, J. D. Wetherspoon opened one of their pubs on the ground floor. “The Electrical Wizard” was named after Dr. Walford Bodie, a Scots-born entertainer, known as ‘The Electrical Wizard of the North’, who was famous for his ‘shocking’ magic tricks and the use of a replica electric chair!

Another view of the theatre after it ceased operations as a cinema can be seen here.
