Mars Hill Church now occupy the former cinema and have reopened parts of the building with more to come such as the cafe bar. The Red Rock Harmony choir use it for rehearsals and a concert was held in September 2017 by musical group Belle Voci. The flats on top are self-catering holiday flats called Riviera Apartments.

dave-bronx; you assume correctly. You will find most cinema buildings here in the UK refer to the main floor as the Stalls and upstairs as the Circle or occasionally Balcony

However in ‘live’ theatres you get the terms Orchestra Stalls for the main floor, Royal Circle or Dress Circle for upstairs. If a live theatre has additional upstairs seating areas, then the next one up would be the Balcony and a third circle up would be the Gallery. Mezzanine’s are rarely found in UK cinemas and theatres.

Pardon my ignorance, but in the opening description the seating arrangement is stated as ‘stalls’ and ‘circle’ – is this what we on the west side of the pond would call orchestra (the main floor) and loge/mezzanine/balcony (upstairs)?
