He had been in the buisness a long time [he opened the copton organ of the regal cinema St Leonards Nr Hastings in the south east of england back in 1932 for example.

This cinema must be ‘dark’ as the Rossiya hotel (WORLDS LARGEST HOTEL 1967-1990)closed its doors on the 1st of January 2007.

It would be great to see some photos of it though.

It would be great If the site could have a feature where one could research the cinema by period. ie date opened [re-builds and major re moddeling could also be added]

Also in the 'search theatre'section could you put 'location’ instead of city because cinemas are also found in towns, villages and suburbs etc. best wishes.
