Thanks for the correction Ian.
Here is a photograph of the auditorium you took in 1990, just prior to demolition:

Correction to the above information – the Kingswest Centre is not on the site of the former Opera House / Palladium / Odeon, It is the Brighton Centre (Conference venue and Concert Hall) which occupies the site of this former Frank Matcham designed theatre.
