Bernard Goldthorpe and Stan Close continued in their respective roles in the replacement Odeon and I knew them well. I was Bernard’s assistant manager from late 1969 and took over the cinema when he was hospitalised with a heart condition during 1970. Mr Goldthorpe was a most enthusiastic manager and a lovely man, his wife and family were most supportive and would invite me to join them for Sunday lunch while Bernard recuperated. He was always keen to hear of my latest attempts to boost the Odeon’s profitability (with new 70mm. product becoming thin on the ground and our cinema mainly depending on the Rank Release, we were struggling as a proportion of the rebuilding cost was still coming out of our profits every week and we were sharing programmes with the Odeons Middlesbrough, Darlington and West Hartlepool). On Flickr as “Fanatical about Odeon”, I have posted pictures of the new Odeon’s interior and exterior and a ticket for the opening performance.

John;Thanks for your input and the photograph. However, this page is for the original Regal/Odeon which was demolished and the ‘new’ Odeon you pictured was built on the same site.

The ‘new’ Odeon has its own page here:
/theaters/14274/

Hope you can post you photograph on that page! Thanks
