I bought this cinema in 1956. Employed A.M.S.Tait to take down the Nissen, and rebuild half as The Garage Dounby.

The cinema called "ORCADIA" was built late 1943. During its short life span it ran 691 miles of film through its 2 projectors!Does anyone out there have a photo of how it looked back then or any other information? I would greatly appreciate it.
