An affectionate tribute to this cinema was broadcast on Radio 4 at 11.30am on 11th March, 2003. I taped it. The date and last film agree with that given above.

Hi Kevin, this clip of Club Noreik is on youtube, but you don’t see much of the interior:

Best wishes, Jeremy

Hi Laurie. I don’t suppose that you have any photos of the inside of the Corner even as a club? I started at St Ignatius College, Stamford Hill, in 1959 and used to look at the stills outside the Corner, though I never went in. It closed not long after. I remember that a couple of doors up there was a sweet shop, where they made delicious sweets on the premises. Happy days!

No reply from Candice re my resonse to her comments on Ken Roe’s posting. This is her only posting. She obviously has an agenda which has nothing to do with the love of old cinemas.

Hi Laurie Boost Jnr here, the Club Noreik did indeed get its name from my brother Kierons name backwards. The club was compulsory purchased in the late 70s for redevelopment.

Candice, When I read Mr Roe’s comments I took them to be a statement of fact. Would you be making a similar fuss if he said that the club had been frequented by Scots or Irish?

KenRoe, You stated “Keeping the Noreik name, it later became a nightclub, frequented mainly by blacks…”

Why did you feel that you needed to refer to the colour of people who visited club Noreik? Why? Is it an issue for you?

And thanks to Kevin’s lead, I discovered that Kieron was the name of the son of the club’s owner, Laurie Boost, who was the business partner of Laurie Jay.

It is Kieron backwards.

Hi Doolally, I have tried to research that but can’t find much. I believe that Noreik is a fairly common surname in Norway…maybe the owner had Norwegian connections!!

Where did it get the name ‘Noreik’ from?

Here’s a poster advertising The Who at Club Noreik on Saturday March 13th 1965. They had also appeared on January 23rd. Gene Vincent appeared there on August 15th 1964 according to genevincentuk website.

Following its nightclub days it featured as a “concert” venue and the Rolling Stones played here just before they became really famous.

Here are 3 photographs I took on a gloomy rainy day in June 1980 when demolition had commenced. The last name of the building ‘Club Noreik’ is above the corner entrance. The building had been painted black and had lost its decorative features and corner dome. The roof had already been taken off and the front doors were open. I peeked in but wasn’t allowed to take photographs.
