My parents went there as the dance hall , But i went to see the various Groups Golden Earring Lou Reed Status Quo The rolling stones Black Sabbath Alex Harvey Band Watching Bachman Turner Overdrive with a support group called Thin Lizzy.
Again seen a few films here LIVE AND LET DIE The ADAMS family Manhattan and the last film i seen there was Jackie Brown, other one of Glasgows great picture houses.
I started going to this cinema back in 1974 , then it was still the Classic in the eight years since it closed i saw many many films ,it was still a good cinema back in the late seventies ,but when new owners told over it The Shalimar within a couple of years needed to spend money on the general up keep of the building a nice picture house in its day ,but lack of investment in the cinema it closed . The Shalimar suffered the fate of other cinemas in south Manchester like the Sale Odeon the Palace in Levenshulme and the Burnage Concord at the end of 1984/new year of 1985 there were not many cinemas left in south Manchester , you had to travel in city centre or in to Stockport.

I saw The Living Daylights here in 1987 whilst on holiday, great place to see it in.The film had Dutch subtitles but was spoken in normal English , but the Hollanders speak excellent English and thats from a Scot Bob Kincaid
edna green was that her first name i started going to the Savoy in the new year of 1986. When i started going there it was part of the Tatton group , then part of Apollo in 1992 , then in 1995 it was taken over by Wendy i can not remember her second name and last it has been taken over yet again. That cinema has quite a history behind it and i have seen many many films in nearly 31 years there. Yours Robert Kincaid The Bridges of Madison County
I have visited it a few times over the years .Seeing Gregors Girl There and Quadophenia .
This was a truly magnificent cinema in south Manchester it had stalls and a circle , other cinemas in Chorlton Withington and the Classic in Stockport were all run of the mill , but the Tatton as i knew it , was great when i went there in 1984 saw i number of films such as The Temple Of Doom , Romancing the Stone , shortly after that it closed , but sadly was never busy . My time in that year was too brief when went there . I took a visit last year in to the Tatton thank fully most the orginal interior is still there, it had a huge screen for the movies.
