Children in Broughton had a wide choice of entertainment! I refer to the advert for the ‘X’ Certificated ‘The Flesh is Weak’ in the photos section……

Looking at the List of McDonalds in Manchester area, I found McDonalds Rialto. Naturally it is disappointing to find the cinema has gone, but the name lives on!

I was the last ever Manager of this cinema when it closed in 1973. We held an after the show staff party in the foyer area on the last night. It was a sad night but a great party. I spent the next two weeks clearing and transfering stocks etc to other sites before the final boarding-up process. Following this I went on relief duties to other ABC Cinemas in the area.

In 1968, the manager was Dave Keats who, at various times of day, used to frequent a nearby pub called ‘The Post Office’.

If the District Manager phoned the cinema during one of Dave’s absences, the staff would always say “He’s at the Post Office”.

And he usually was. ;)
