Actually, it was opened as the Carlton and the name changed to Essoldo around 1950. I was born and raised in Stockport (Cheadle Heath) and was taken here to see my first film on my fourth birthday in April, 1951, which was Victor Mature and Hedy Lamaar in Cecil B. DeMille's Technicolor epic, "Samson and Delilah." It was also the first cinema in Stockport to be converted for CinemaScope and the north west premiere of the first CinemaScope film, "The Robe", was held here in January, 1954.
