The Royalty Cinema, Bowness-on-Windermere:

There are many things to do and see in the Lake District, but on a rainy day why not catch a film at the Royalty Cinema in Bowness?

Set in an Art Deco- era building, the cinema has three screens.

The main one is adorned with glowing red velvet and wood panelling, with a period auditorium and Wurlitzer organ glistening in the bottom corner.

As part of an open day event, we enjoyed a look around The Royalty Cinema in Bowness-on-Windermere.

The cinema was open to give film fans a look behind the scenes.

As part of the Heritage Open Day scheme, the cinema gave members of the public a chance to find out more about the cinema, which celebrated its 90th anniversary earlier this year.

As well as learning about the building’s history, there were a number of old newsreels being shown.

Furthermore, the historic Wurlitzer organ was being played by local organist Paul Gregson.
