I remember watching Errol Flynn in “Robin Hood” and “The Lady and the Tramp” in a double bill here. I must have been about 5 or 6 years old.

Round about 1987 I was working on the then disused forecourt of Dalston Junction station, and parked my car opposite the exit that was in Roseberry Place. I noticed the door was open and stuck my head in. The place was now pretty decrepit and there was a horrible smell of exhaust fumes from the car auctions combined with the strongest odour of damp I had ever experienced. That took a lot away from my happier memory as a child.

The Gaumont was demolished in February 2006, despite protests from campaigners to save it.
