96 Wigan Ritz 15

The enormous Ritz Wigan opened in 1938 with 2560 seats designed by John Fairweather who designed many of the large Playhouse Cinemas in Scotland. It had a full stage but was subdivided in 1977 with three cinemas in the circle and cafe and bingo in the stalls. Much of the interior remained hidden away. It was recently demolished.
