This website was set up around 12 years ago to keep the long forgotten Longford Essoldo Cinema in the public eye. I work in arts management and it bugs me seeing buildings of significance like this go to waste. The website has served as an archive for images, history, memories and to document news items as they’ve happened.

Whilst I’ve had emails weekly asking about the building or mistaking me for an agent of the owner somehow, often I’ve just been posting maybe once or twice a year, usually to keep the site from not looking abandoned but essentially to say ‘no news’. Now I can’t keep up! This article from the Manchester Evening News sums up some of the latest information.
