The 1930s-built Tatton Cinema has been transformed into modern retail units and apartments, keeping the original art-deco facade.
The building has two shop units either side of the old cinema entrance. The retail unit and seven apartments above, known as Tatton Place, are built out from the existing building. A new four storey building with 26 apartments known as Picture House is located at the rear.
