Description

Even zombies find the Lacy uncongenial.

An imposing white-stone building with arched windows. A decaying example of the classic 'fleapit' cinema, dwarfed by the neighbouring Beacham Cinema multiplex to the east.

History

Built on the site of Stanbury Village's former lace-making quarter, the Lacy Cinema was constructed in the 1950s and was popular with the Village's beehived, greased 'teen-agers'. Its darkened rows were a favorite place for a cream soda and a cuddle while watching classic B-movies such as Mid-Morning of the Not-Quite-Dead People and It Came from the Pink Lagoon.

Despite its fleapit reputation, the cinema remained popular with the suppressed youth of this somewhat stuffy suburb, especially those too timid to venture into racier quarters of Malton. However, by the 1980s the advent of video had hit the Lacy's fortunes hard, and it closed for a decade. In the 1990s, the Beacham Cinema conclusively ended any hope of the Lacy returning in its original form, although it did re-open briefly as a Laz-R-Kwest venue for yet another generation of bored-rigid teens - until that form of entertainment was killed off by the PlayStation.

Ironically, the zombie apocalypse so beloved of PlayStation users has proved rather less enjoyable than they anticipated, and has prompted a return to the Lacy by survivors seeking a dark refuge from the mayhem outside. Good luck with that, teenagers!
