I have a copy of a newspaper advertising feature for the opening of this cinema in which it states that it was fitted with a 40 foot wide cinemasope screen and equipped with four track stereo sound. Some further details from this feature. It was built in a stadium style similar to the Regent Middlesbrough. Upholstery on the seats and the carpets were deep claret red, which was repeated on each side of the proscenium. Beige and elfin green formed the colour scheme for the ceiling and champagne curtains were appliqued in elfin green and claret. The opening film was Carmen Jones.
