Garrison Theatre. Hoy

Just down the road from Lyness you find the magnificently incongrous frontage of a large theatre and cinema, which was the entrance to the Garrison Theatre in WW2.

Does anybody have any pictures of this building when it was in use, or when it had fallen into disrepair after the war?
