Abbeygate Cinema: Talk & Tour by Pat Church
History display boards and lots of photos and memorabilia will be on display at the unique boutique Abbeygate Cinema which nestles in the historic sector of Bury St Edmunds during Heritage Open Days 2021 plus tours and a talk by Pat Church.
Detailing the cinema’s unique history and the part it has played in the market town of Bury St Edmunds, visitors will be able to find out about the history of cinema in Bury St Edmunds and more specifically the history of Abbeygate Cinema which has been a picturehouse since the 1920s. You will be able to view some fabulous architecture lovingly restored and a selection of specific time slots will be available during the event when visitors will be able to meet local cinema legend, Pat Church, who will host some sessions and answer questions. Having worked at the cinema for more than 55 years, Pat knows the fabric of the building like no other and has many a story to tell. The tours will include the chance to see the projection room and the ongoing development work of the planned Screen 4, still to come.
