The Lounge

History of The Lounge

The intimate “Lounge” cinema is located inside the former ballroom of the old theatre. This Cinema opened in 1988.

The dome in the centre of the ceiling is a copy of the Paramount Theatre in Oakland, California, which is regarded as the finest art-deco theatre in the world.

Much of the plasterwork on the ceiling is copied from the original ballroom design.

Features of the Cinema

The Lounge features a wall to wall screen, NEC 2K Digital projection and Dolby Digital Cinema Sound.

It’s a delighted setting of plush red velvet seats with deeply coloured stained glass light fittings. The Lounge seats 167 people.
