History

One of the most controversial theatres in Malton, Eckersley Cinema has a long history. Starting out as part of the Malton Community College's Theatre and Drama Program it served as the private theatre for many student films.

Funding from grants left to the school dried up in the late 1980's forcing the College to sell off ownership. It was snapped up by a performance art troupe that specialized in controversial plays. The midnight shows of Lolita inspired a very real kiddie porn ring in ironically named nearby Lolley Library.

After being shut down by the FBI, the theatre sat empty for a few months before being purchased by Furchase Enterprises. Although, slightly less revolting than kiddie porn, the Furry Film Festival "Our Tails of Love" was too much for the good citizens of the rest of Malton. Residents from surrounding suburbs picketed and protested outside of the Dunell Hills theatre for weeks.

With help, the crowds were dispersed and life returned to relatively normal as the theatre again sat empty.

These days it sets empty still, but only because it, like most of Dunell Hills, is in ruins and controlled by the undead.
