The last time the venue was used for music was in 1967, when The Beatles held two sell-out shows on the 10th date of their 1963 Autumn Tour.
Back then the cinema was called the ABC theatre, and live shows were held there regularly during the 1960s. The last time the stage was used was for a Morecambe and Wise comedy show.
