This place on #HighStreetArmadale doesn’t look like much but a wide front with an arch and simple detailing – it must be an old cinema, which it is, in fact one of the oldest purpose built cinemas that’s still somewhat intact – the #ArmadaleTheatre opened in August 1912, finally closing during WW2, then factories, a ski school (!) few things till it became Sotheby’s in 2003, lately it’s furniture – and the typical simple arched ceiling is mostly still there, complete with vents. Think the proscenium was at least partly in evidence until recently.
