Thursday Challenge: Architecture - former Don Cinema
The Don Cinema on Bramhall Lane was opened on 25th September 1913. It had seating in stalls and balcony levels, and had a 30 feet wide proscenium. Independently operated, or occasionally operated by small independent chains, the Don Cinema was closed on 29th June 1957 with Norman Wisdom in "Up in the World". It was never equipped to screen CinemaScope wide screen films. It was sold to John Blundell Ltd. for use as a furniture store and has since become a Majestic Wine Warehouse store.
