From 1962 ABC cinema had a policy in dropping the name eg Ritz and standardising to ABC for their main theatre in a town or area .

The text above says renamed ABC in 1962. However the cinema appears in the opening of the 1954 film ‘For Better, For Worse'and it is called ABC Ritz.

I have great memories of this cinema, I saw my first ever film there which was ‘Dr. Who and The Daleks, 1965 and then used to go every Saturday morning to the ABC minors. By the 70’s went nearly every week, saw some now classic films. Wonderful times.

In 1947-8, my cousin and I were ABC Minors here. We travelled from Stanmore on the 142 bus. I remember the old arch, the coloured curtains and the organ.

My brother and I used to come to this cinema every Saturday morning for the ABC Minors in the late 1960’s. Cartoons, newsreels, a serial (I remember seeing Flash Gordon here) and a main feature. We always visited a nearby sweet shop before going in. My favourite was a small paper bag full of sherbert powder!
