The Theatre Royal

The Theatre Royal, Breck Road now a furniture shop shows you that unfortunately cinemas are a falling trade with the birth of home TV –  I would love it if the heritage of cinema was kept alive and is therefore my passion of bringing the history of cinema UK back to life through “tagging communities” opened 24th December 1888 featuring films such as “Bohemian girl” A band of Gypsies are camped outside the walls of Count Arnheim’s palace. Oliver’s wife kidnaps the Count’s daughter Arline, then leaves the child and runs off with her lover, Devilshoof. Not knowing her true identity, Oliver, with the help of “Uncle” Stanley, raises the girl as his own. Years later, Arline, still unaware of her noble birth, is caught trespassing on the Count’s grounds and is thrown into the dungeon. Meanwhile, Stanley and Oliver pass the time playing “fingers” and bumblingly ply their trade picking pockets. Finally, just when Oliver needs his help to rescue Arline, Stanley gets drunk while siphoning wine into bottles. and Maritania and Figaro which was an opera based on Marriage of Figaro – an Italian opera by W.A Mozart, all films were started with the singing of “God save the Queen/King”
