As a correction to my Overview, according to a letter from Tim Partner, Chief Executive of Arrow Multiplexes Ltd, held in the Cinema Theatre Association Archive, the Arrow cinema opened in December 1997. And a press cutting reported that it closed on Friday 30th June 2000. It transpired that Arrow had forecast higher admissions than had been achieved, and they were unable to pay the rent, even with the landlord, Allied London and Scottish Properties plc, after some negotiation, accepting a reduced level of rent. (Arrow said they had been promised that a bowling alley and theme pub would be built on the site, which would attract further potential patrons.) Eventually, the landlord decided to sell the site.
