|Accessibility Information: This cinema is spread over two levels. Access to the stalls is via two entrances at either edge of the auditorium, each with double doors - one entrance is flat, and therefore suitable for wheelchairs, while the other is accessed via 6 steps. Once in the auditorium, it is split into two main seating sections - front and rear, and each of those sections are separated by three aisles. Fire exits are at the front of the stalls adjacent to the screen. Access to the circle foyer is via a single staircase of approximately 30 steps, and there is no wheelchair access to this level. Once in the top foyer, two sets of double doors lead to the circle. Within the circle, seating is arranged in four blocks separated by three aisles. Circle seating is "stepped" and there are two steps down to each row. There are no fire exits from the circle.|

The Radway Theatre opened as a live theatre on 25th June 1928. It was designed by local architect P.E. Steadman. Seating was provided for 680; there were 520 seats in the stalls and 160 seats in the circle. The proscenium was 27 feet wide and the stage was 22 feet deep, with four dressing rooms. The auditorium ceiling is made of patterned pressed tin, an unusual material to use in the UK, especially in a cinema.
Soon after opening, talking pictures arrived and the theatre was converted into a full time cinema, to the plans of noted cinema architect William Henry Watkins. Little alteration was done to the auditorium, it was mainly the foyer area alterations and provision of a projection suite that he was responsible for. It re-opened as the Radway Cinema on 2nd December 1929 with Estelle Brody in "Kitty". In 1936 it was re-named Palace Theatre, but went back to its original name the next year.
In the 1950’s a wider 41 feet proscenium was installed and the seating capacity was reduded to 365. The cinema was closed in 1984 for modernisation and re-opened 17th August 1985 with "A Passage to India".
Making use of the 2020 lockdown, we installed a state-of-the-art Digital Laser Projector which is best in class.
