My friends this afternoon, sugested do a search for (forgive spelling) Art Deco cinemas buildings,in the uk, you get the idea. Apprently we’ll get a lot of railway stations, in London and the South coast. When I do said search, will post in here.

If anyone else does it b4 me, please post any intresting findings here please.

Well that may help, as I’d guessthey’d run a “new” film, so we’re looking at feb/march. Will try to hit the micro film later this week.

Wow, thanks! The rest of my stuff for now is at http://tux.isa-geek.org

You don’t know what month or even day, it opened as a cinema do you? 1939, but wot month.

I don’t fancy going through a year of micro film!

Well near the end of sept I will be putting up a website featuring this building. I an a regular in the pub and know the old “Rewind Boy”. So we are going to make him a presentation, soon. After that the pics will be posted.

As to exterior, we were more interested in the interior ones, but I go there fairly often, will take some!
