My Grandfather was the manager when the Gaumont opened in 1931. His name was Charles (Charlie) Brown and he stayed there until he left to manager the New Palladium on Lords St in Southport in 1935. Prior to opening the Gaumont he managed the Century Cinema from 1929. I have posted some photos of the Gaumont and the opening programme, as well as the promotional display for Trader Horn which opened the Cinema that week.

If you click on the official website link (above) and then on the Venue panel, you can see pictures of what the auditorium (now called King’s Hall) looks like; there is also a History link on that Venue page that has some historical photos.
