Salford Carlton, Cross Lane. As a child of the ‘70s, I have fond memories of watching my first movies there, from Star Wars to several Spielberg films. A lot of my formative memories and experiences of the cinema came from watching movies at the Salford Carlton. It closed in 1984 and was finally demolished in 1989. As it was being pulled down, a friend and I sneaked in through the demolition site and actually managed to have a look around this old cinema, which was quite an odd experience, uncovering several disused film reels and posters. They should never have pulled it down. How dare they wipe away a local treasure and replace it with a Toyota showroom?
