Hmm. memories That was for “The Smallest Show on Earth” :o)
Seating Reduction… Most of the Built Odeons.. Cliftons did not need to reduce.. and I cannot think of any of our 16 Cinemas that did it…
Have load at picture of the New sales Kiosk of 1953
Have loaded a picture showing How Rank organised Royal Premier seating in the old days…
Found an early picture

@ Robbie25646 Have put a picture of a Panto Advert card
I hope I have put the correct picture on.. Granada are too alike..
I was told by a high up Rank contact I dealt with regular. That there is or was an interesting conditon on the lease from the Freeholders. That a number of Seats had to be on permenantly reserved for them…
@ CSWalzak Blast…. I thought I’d beaten you :@)
Have loaded interior of the Theatre when it was called “The Fulton”
Found this picture by chance.. Forgot I had it..
I have loaded what I think is an interior picture of the Theatre
@ surf_digby. Very good pictures.. I used to do Managment Relief there in the 1970’s I spent many happy hours investergating the building. If you see what I mean. This Theatre would have been better being taken over and used as the local Theatre instead of the one they have..
The company owning it was “The Stratford Picture House Coompany Ltd.,” On the Break up of the Clifton Group in the early 1960’s.. The S.P.H.CO with the BT Davis Circuit formed Theatre Administration Ltd., as a Film Booking and Group buying group.
I have pictures of this Theatre and will load them as soon as I found where my Late mother had put them for safty….
This could be the only Poster of the Last Edition left..
The local architectural firm Penty & Thompson, only acted as an agent for William Glenn. They had no design input.. Basically Day to day dealing with the builder and Local Authority..
“One Mans meat is another mans poison” as the old saying go’s…
