Ian commented about Palace Cinema on May 19, 2007 at 1:42 pm

Also the entrance is in the road which is the other side of the block from Darthill Road. I think, enlarging the google map that it is called Robin Goodfellows Lane. It is a very minor road!

The above text should read “closed prior to 1930” (not in mid 1930).

In May 2007 the Regal had a major makeover with full redecoration, new equipment, carpets and seats as a result of the town selling off the Corn Exchange building. Photos here:–

Ian commented about Olympia Theatre on May 8, 2007 at 12:53 pm

Correction – the Royal Hippodrome, controlled by Rank, was demolished in 1980 NOT 1984 as is widely reported (including above).

Ian commented about Center Theatre on Apr 21, 2007 at 4:43 pm

To be fair these pictures did originally have the Century name. I was on holiday and did not spend a lot of time researching histories – I was told by people in the restaurant that it was called the Century.

Subsequent (internet) research has discredited that and I changed the titles.

If anyone knows better then please post …. !!!!
