If I remember correctly, this was opened as a 270 seat single auditorium by a Mr. Sample who twinned the venue a couple of years or so later. I think the Chester Le Street outlet opened as a twin although it was down to only one screen operating before it was sold and turned over to other use. Sad to think that the two towns had about 6,500 cinema seats until the early 1960’s.
