Description

A very old 1950's cinema that's still in remarkably good condition. In the main room, there are two ticket booths and a snack store, still containing a few packets of sweets, popcorn and drinks. The main room is covered in layers of English film posters, covering every space of the wall. The cinema has four screens, all quite small.

Location

Adlam Cinema is one of the most Northern cinema's of Malton.

The closest Police Department is nextdoor's Fenwyk Plaza Police Department and if you need medical aid, your best bet would be Adalbert General Hospital.

Recent Events

7th June 2007-Dead Dudes member AdamKun2 infaltrates cinema and put Dead Dudes second film "Rise Of The Draugr" into the film loop. Also added Draugr poster to the ever growing collection.

25th August 2007-Dead Dudes member Dr Rem begins to clean up concession areas, placing Dead Dude Film posters on the wall, and hoping that a Dead Dudes film festival will begin a new showing any time soon. Also, secretly wanting to have a bit part in a newly upcoming film.

History

Perry Cinematic Screens was built in the mid 50s, but its grand opening was overshadowed by the revelation of the newly refurbished Classey Memorial, which commemorates the more than 1000 inhabitants of Lamport Hills that have fallen over the course of both World Wars and the Korean War.

Within two years, Perry Cinematic Screens had filed for bankruptcy, and the building and equipment would be left untouched for nearly two decades.

In 1974, however, Abe Adlam bought the lot and invested heavily in new equipment and titles. One of the first movies that was shown on one of the four brand new screens was the new and revolutionary Chinatown. Before the movie, there were several commercials and a news reel. The first news report shown at Adlam Cinema reported on the LNP's electoral victory.

While the 70s are a glorious time for Adlam Cinema, the 80s prove to be desastrous: income declines, the big names dissappear and Abe Adlam dies of heart failure in the spring of 1987.

In 1988, the Cinema was purchased by the Lamport Hills Communal Fund, a local non-profit organization. For the next twenty years, Adlam Cinema's screens and halls would be used as an event center for companies, businesses and local performances.

Like most of Malton, Adlam Cinema would be deserted after the outbreak in 2005, and it now remains largely unoccupied, with the notable exception of survivors of the local Dead Dudes, Honey Badgers or Philosophe Knights who stay the night.
