what a shame that a building with history,that could have provided wigan with a performance/arts space was demolished for a soulless shoping center!

It is such a shame! Now we have a shopping arcade that as taken the life out of other shopping areas in the town centre. the cinema would have been a good venue to bring a bit of good entertainment into the town.

To Think I've Seen Roy Orbison Gene Pitney The Beatles And Many More Great Artist's In This Great Building Such A Great Shame Could Still Be A Big Asset To The Town

Watched Ghostbusters here in 1984/5. Loved the place and it was convenient to call in if you'd been to Wigan. Now you got to go out of town to watch the pics. btw the grand arcade and the baths are eyesores. Typical council shortsightedness.

I'm proud to say I've never set foot in the Grand Farceade..It's my protest at them doing this act, the building was designed for that spot and, was unique. They could have knocked out the partitions and had a marvelous Theatre but, Wigan Council don't listen.
