The cinema eventually ceased to be economically viable and closed on 30 October The main entrance was at 20 Cannon Street, through a narrow entrance which was also the entrance to the Metropole Hotel. In spite of its now unique position, audiences continued to decline. I went there a fair bit simply because it was cheap. The Cannon Street entrance in is part of a Subway Restaurant.

Tne L-Shaped pub used part of the premises, but the essolvo auditorium has been up for sale since at least It was re-named Essoldo on 9th July Audiences began to decline steadily as more and more people stayed at home to watch television.

As well as films the programmes included variety acts and the stage was provided with curtains, footlights, dimmers and a modern stage lighting switchboard.

No one has favorited this theater yet. The Odeon was the best in Dover,well it would be I was working there, if you go back to my life story you will see the good fun I had there to, I did not always do it right even then.

All seating was on a single level, apart essolo a private box at the rear.

I remember aboutone wet Saturday, seeing a western on one of these 2 cinemas called Red Sundown. As a member you can:
