Look how beautiful this new-look 1930s Sunderland cinema was
If you're blue and you don't where to go to – we’re puttin on the Ritz with a look back to the launch of a super-stylish Sunderland picture house.
Take a look at these stunning photos which show the inside of the ABC (Ritz) Sunderland. They were taken at around the time of the launch of the Holmeside venue in 1937.
Thanks go to Bill Mather who owned and ran cinemas across the North East. He is a font of information on days at the movies but we want your memories as well.
