I have no record of the opening date of the Green Parrot Theatre, but I have it Listed in the Film Daily Yearbook, 1941.

It became a popular 24/7 grind house that was favoured by homeless street people looking for a place to spend the night. Its last years of operation were as a X-rated adult porn cinema who’s patrons gave it the nick-name ‘the dirty bird’.

It had a fire in October 1979 and was closed, never to re-open again and it was demolished.

From what I understand, it showed a lot of sci-fi triple bills in the 1960’s prior to its porn house incarnation.

Michael Copner (publisher of Cult Movies magazine) once was a projectionist here during the 1970’s.
