The old Tudor Cinema, Bourne, Lincolnshire
The Tudor Cinema opened in North Street, Bourne, on 2nd December 1929, built on the site of two cottages with dormer windows and the old roof line can still be seen on an adjoining building to the north. The designer was Mr A J Thraves of Nottingham who followed the tradition for cinemas of the period by adopting a flamboyant style, in this case mock Tudor with a distinctive A-shaped gable and a half-timbered frontage. The auditorium had room for 588 patrons and also included an orchestra pit for the pianist who accompanied the silent films of the day. The Tudor progressed to talkies then to Technicolor and wide screen but by 1962, attendances had dwindled and after a spell of bingo sessions and live entertainment, the cinema closed in 1989 and the building later sold, re-opening in May 1991 as a Chinese restaurant, the business which continues there today.
