Is this town’s first cinema?

I read the article regarding the new cinema (News Post Leader, June 27) and was interested in the comment that the VueXtreme is Cramlington’s first ever cinema.

Although I have only lived in Cramlington since 1995, I have noticed a building in High Pit Road that looks like it was originally a cinema. This is in the East Cramlington area.

It is currently a cycle shop, and I seem to remember hearing it was originally a cinema.

I’m sure that other people may contact you about this, and would be interested in finding out more about it.
