Very interesting information and photos.

Does anyone know what happened to the hand prints of the stars that were at one time in the reception of the cinema in its Gaumont days?

I remember that the entrance block standing for months after the auditorium had been demolished, with the Odeon name still up – usually they try and strip off the names.
