i worked at this cinema in the early 90`s i remember when we did a rocky horror picture show themed evening all of us that were staff dressed up and welcomed the visitors. as i rembember was told that george micheal worked there when he was about 14. i remember as well when eastenders over took the parking when they shot a couple of scenes in the road opposite they where the scenes where ian and cindy where going to the solicitors about their divorce,

There’s a picture of the facade in Dennis F. Edwards “Watford A Pictorial History” Phillimore, 1992, illustration 125. This is from the author’s own collection. It would seem to have been taken soon after 1916, as the hoardings advertise Lady Tree (Maud Holt) in “Still Waters Run Deep” (1916) showing Next Week, and “Mr Lyndon at Liberty” London Film Company, from 1915 book by Victor Bridges, for the current week.
