Now abandoned and empty once again. With full stage facilities I can’t believe the local council cannot see the value this building could become for little cost into a wonderful community arts centre.

Now housing what appears to be an Asian educational centre. An elevator has also been installed.

Dance school has moved out and “for lease” sign now prominent. Hate to think what will be the fate of this building – especially sad due to the functional stage that could accommodate many shows/functions/conferences etc.

Although primarily built for cinema, a large stage for theatrical presentation was also included. Sadly, little used. Occasional amateur pantomimes during holiday periods, and some local school speech nights was the sum total of this under-used facility. Recent inspection revealed auditorium little changed, apart from all seating removed and a flat floor to accommodate a dance studio. Original proscenium and silver/grey tabs remain.

Now operating as a dance studio.
