Fire - Southport, Merseyside.
Disasters. Fire destroys a theatre in Southport. Various shots panning over the damage: charred beams; piles of rubble / ruins; a shot of some of the seats; massive destruction. Exterior view; w/ much of the outer brick walls still standing; smoke rising from inside; marquee in front 'Opera House - This Week - "The Broken Melody"'. Pan to a fire truck parked down the street near typical Southport Victorian awnings over shop fronts (?) and in front of the 'Scala' (theatre?) showing 'Pleasure Craze'.
