or a personal message facility!

Conran – I am wary of placing an e-mail address on a public forum so I have set up this temporary address

.uk

send me a message and I can reply using a permanent one! I am by no means up-to-speed but I have been agitating regarding the Palace already.

Ian commented about Spa Theatre on Aug 18, 2007 at 7:03 pm

I had hoped to be invited back for a progress press event by now, but as you say it has gone quiet! When I was there the screen was still intact in the tower, but the 3 screen Forum (dreadful venue) seems to have sapped the market for films from the Spa. From what I saw of the renovations, film is not a consideration when it reopens.

Ian commented about Parkway Cinema on Aug 16, 2007 at 3:29 pm

The Parkway reopened in August 2007 and these pictures were taken a week later. It is a comfortable theatre with generous legroom and a large (new) screen in the lower auditorium. It has been fully refurbished for the reopening, retaining the Odeon seating.

Ian commented about Odeon Tottenham Court Road on Aug 11, 2007 at 7:43 pm

Don’t think the above comment applies to the Paramount / Odeon – there is no basement remaining after the 1960-ish demolition. The site is still vacant in 2007.
