LongtonEmpire9

Frank Matcham typically used faces in his theatre designs and the Empire Longton was no exception. After bingo ceased the Empire was on the brink of being returned to theatre use as the Stoke Repertory Theatre, when tragically a fire swept through the building completely destroying what had been a near intact Matcham theatre. A scanned image from 1989.
