I worked in the box office here 1985-91. There were several 70mm presentations in screen 1 during that time. They were : Revolution, Little Shop of Horrors, The Untouchables, The Witches of Eastwick, Cry Freedom, Ibdiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Batman. The last 70mm was Far abd Away in ‘92. Does anybody know what the first one was? As of 1990 the #1 box office champion was “Dangerous Liaisons” with a gross of £243,000. The total gross in 1989 was £2,825,000; six times the 1985 figure during a flourishing period for the cinema. It was the first ABC/Cannon to have computerised ticketting in '87.

In my twenty – thirty years in London this is one of those with the nearby Cineworld Chelsea that has been an ABC, A Cannon, MGM, Virgin, UGC, and now Cineworld…it serves its purpose in the neighborhood efficiently…and am pleasantly surprised it has survived even if it looks a bit tired at the heels…Have seen White Palace, Godfather III, Big Lebowski, Best in Show, Man in the Moon, Sixth Sense, Deep Blue Sea, Buena Vista Social Club, State and Main, O Brother How Art Thou, House of Sand and Fog, Other People’s Money, Dr T and the Women here over the years…probably one or two more

OK, many thanks Ken.
All the times I’ve seen movies here in the last 25 years I had no idea of that extension.

Ian; The squash court was built on the car park at the rear of the building, on its right hand side.
