Information for this tour was contributed by Ken Roe.

Opened as a live theatre, which it remains today. It showed movies in the silent days in the 1920s, became a talkie cinema in 1929 but alternated with live productions. It became a full time cinema from 1942 to 1947. Since then, it has reverted back to live stage shows.
