The description of the location in the text is correct (“located at the main intersection of Heathfield Road, Villa Road and Lozells Road”), but the map shows it a way down Barker Street and the heading has “Baker Street”. But how wonderful to find this record of the cinema where I used to go for (I recall) the 6d Saturday morning movies. Thank you Ken and others.
