The Classic was open throughout 1974 and most if not all of 1975.

Classic initially regarded some of the former Essoldos they acquired to be so bad that they named them simply ‘The Cinema’. Stanley fell into this category as did nearby Houghton Le Spring although after a short while they were ‘awarded’ the ‘Classic’ name.

Perhaps they had acquired a job lot of army war surplus paint with which to ‘tart up’ the fronts of house.
