Status: Currently used as a second hand shop, the building has recently been on the market for sale. I asked permission from the lease holder and was allowed to have a look around and take photographs. He seemed quite pleased to find that someone showed an interest in the building. On the left hand side of the lobby entrance there is a collection of photographs and clippings about the history of the cinema.
