Line drawing of the Compton Organ


Dear Friends

In April 2000, our organisation completed the installation of the ex. Paramount 1 Odeon, Birmingham Compton Cinema Organ in The Penistone Paramount Cinema, which is only a few miles away from Barnsley and close to the M I motorway. This small but characteristic cinema now has the only Compton Organ to be located in a fully operative cinema in the whole of the North of England & Scotland. Since the opening of the organ, we have had the pleasure of welcoming many organised visits from countless Groups, Tour Operators.. Mystery Trips and Electronic & Theatre Organ Society's. Due to the success or these visits, the Penistone Cinema Organ Trust would like to extend an invitation to your organisation to visit one of our 2007 concert presentations and experience this unique magic for yourselves.

Once again this year, we are able to offer a group booking discount to any organisation wishing to bring a party of 25, or more to one of our listed events. A filly pence reduction on each ticket is offered to groups wishing to arrange a visit to this wonderful cinema organ venue.

Penistone is a small agricultural market town and is located in the heart of some of the most breathtaking and picturesque countryside to be found in Yorkshire and is only a stones throw away from nearby Holmfirth, which is the setting for the BBC TV series, "The Last of the Summer Wine". In fact, many of our visiting groups like to include a visit to this location, or Penistone's Farmer's Market prior to arrival at The Penistone Paramount. The Penistone Cinema Organ Trust have rapidly built up an enviable reputation for the quality of presentation at our Cinema Organ Concerts, not to mention the hospitality that we pride ourselves in providing. In 2000, we were awarded the "Best Visitor Attraction of the Year" award by the areas Tourist Board and have gained unrivalled acclaim as one of the country's top cinema organ venues.

Demand for tickets has soared over the past number of years and additional performances have had to he introduced to meet this demand. Due to the venues sumptuous traditional seating accommodation. either in the stalls or circle, the Paramount can only accommodate 350 and therefore ticket allocation must be on a first come. first served basis.
