Some staff members refuse to be alone in the theatre at night. The spirit of a projectionist is said to haunt the building, sometimes causing equipment to stop working - unless you leave them a gift of chocolate.

His chilling discovery was that of a figure which appears as if it’s a woman floating in what would have been an empty stairwell of the equally empty venue.

Many believe she is the spirit of a Civil War era wife or a mother mourning the loss of her child.
