Film Location

Opened in 1969, the Thorndike Theatre as it was known at the time, was the vision of experience theatre director Hazel Vincent Wallace and an architect fasincated by theatre, Roderick Ham. Together they designed a 500 seat theatre to fit within the walls of the 1930s cinema that the theatre replaced.
