On 14 May 1989, after a 6-month refit by Nick Paris, Richard Porter & John Leonard in which the projectors, lenses, screen and circle seating were all replaced, the cinema re-opened for business with Scrooged (1988) starring Bill Murray. There was now a 28 feet CinemaScope screen but the original green curtain from 1935 was still there. From 21 April 1991 to March 1993 the cinema was operated by Richard & Marion Porter.
