The Cinescene closed on the second week of June, 1983 with Johnathan Pryce in “The Ploughman’s Lunch”. The building stood empty from then until 1988 until it was re-opened as a fast-food restaurant, now a Burger King. At busy times, the main auditorium section is opened up and there is provision to screen movies on the screen via VHS video, although this is not done often.
