ODEONesque commented about The Granada East Ham Wurlitzer on Mar 28, 2015 at 5:55 am

I am listening to this organ as I write in the capable hands of George Welling and I have to say that this is one of the brightest, attacking of these Granada Wurlitzers that I have heard. So glad to see that it is still with us and not far from me too!

The facade was arranged so that a possible cafe could be built behind it but alas this never materialised. I have a photo somewhere of this cinema when closed and will upload when I locate it.

At least it hasn`t been “butchered” inside which is a small mercy. All we need now is a kind hearted eccentric millionaire – ya know one?

I have just remembered, the cinema in question was the Forum and whilst I can`t say for definite that this was the one used in the film I do know that the console design of the organ was the same. Can anyone enlarge on this?

Sorry but what became of the Conacher organ? None too many of them about even in the heyday.

The interior is a pleasant surprise when one considers how unexciting the exterior is, I like it.

Ahh, Ritz cinema, C & A shop, both things of the past now, not just here but anywhere.

I live in Tipton and there is nothing like any of this photo around now and what is here is dying on its feet.

I was about to say how refreshing this report was when I clapped eyes on the last comment – back in the balance again….

Back on its feet again, that makes a nice change to read on here.

Oh gawd! Back to brick box.

ODEONesque commented about Avion Super Cinema on Jul 26, 2013 at 2:21 am

Latest rumour from a Brownhills blog site is that the AVIONs facade area (all thats left) has now reopened as a Wetherspoons and the auditorium site has become the aforementioned car park. I`m going there with my camera soon and will post the results. I used to be ODEON_NUT by the way but forgot me details lol

Indeed Chris, and meantime all that ugly plastic is hiding a rather nice brick frontage, crazy.

It resembles the Danilo at Longbridge which is still with us albeit as a fitness centre.

Not quite a George Coles but superb anyway and now lost.

ODEONesque commented about Astra Entertainment Centre on Jul 25, 2013 at 1:12 pm

I know I sound like my needle`s stuck but this really is a tragic loss. The ODEON here was a thing of great beauty to me and hardly to be found on just any street corner.

ODEONesque commented about Astoria Theatre on Jul 25, 2013 at 1:00 pm

From what Ive read on urbex sites this cinema has been totally trashed inside and thats all on the side of the “big hammer merchants” with the smell of banknotes in their nostrils. Shame.

I visited here with the CTA, must dig my pix out and post them.

Follow this to get the first of 7 photos taken recently, then just scroll through them. http://www.flickr.com/photos/78860621@N02/9049196448/ I walked all round the building and captured just about everything from the outside.
