By late March 2017 demolition was well underway. I’ve posted four photographs, taken on 27th March by David Weedon.

A report in local press and from the CTA, demolition equipment has moved onto the site. They say that they are checking to see if the steel work is rotten. A case of deja a view with the Derby Hippodrome.

Whilst this is a superb site items like this never seem to get into the sites areas like US theatres in danger

Back in 1949-52, while living in Hornchurch, my Saturday mornings were always at the matinee. Upstairs, to avoid the litter from above; a cartoon, newsreel, an episode of Dick Barton, and a main feature. Then I’d walk to the bakery and buy a round loaf, which I demolished on my way home. I recall it was 6d for down and 9d for the balcony. Those were the days! Pete
