I remember the Made in HongKong series from 94-95 also : Zu Warriors, City on Fire, Spooky Encounters, The Killer of course. All the Kitanos up to Sonatine.

Also where I discovered 4th gen chinese film makers like Zhang Yimou and Chen Kaige, not forgetting the beautiful Gong Li. I would have never seen Red Sorghum, Farewell My Concubine without this place.

Other beauties I remember were Cronos, Dazed and Confused, Reservoir Dogs.

I’ll always have a special place in my heart for this theatre.

Notes from “100 Years of Cinema in Southampton” by Patrick Hayward; The Gantry is now demolished but with (hopeful) plans to be the site of a new development incorporating “rehearsal space and studio theater for the nearby and massive Mayflower (ex-Gaumont/Empire) Theatre.
