As opened the theatre could seat 800 patrons. The proscenium was 27 feet wide, not 24, and its prices were 6d to 1/3d in the first year it went over to film only. Sound system was a British Acoustic sound system.Two dressing rooms were provided for the stage performers.
By 1951 seating had been reduced to 650 seats (reason not known) and its prices were 10d to 2/–.
In recent years it has gained the legend of having been haunted during its time as a cinema, although by whom is unknown. Balcony customers have reported being continually disturbed by someone wanting to get to a seat beyond where they were sitting or wishing to access the exit doors, but when they went to complain about this they found that they were the only person in the row!
