Also…I note that great care is taken with exact postcodes for the sites covered, perhaps similar attention could also be given the the inclusion of the addresses for some of them …the 111 High Street address given here for the Grand Hall is also erroneous and was actually the original (before street re-numbering) of the Palais de Luxe cinema further up the High Street. The local street directories, held at Bromley Local History Centre, will be able to provide the correct original address, and the one subsequent to the re-numbering of the High Street.

The statement that “in 1908 it was screening films” would appear to be incorrect, since it was actually closed throughout the whole of that year; the swimming baths referred to were never actually active; it reopened as a live venue (with some cinema use) in April 1909 (and not as the “Grand Hall Cinema”), whilst the Gaumont-British division that it actually became part of was Denman Picture Houses (as the nearby Palais became part of PCT). It was of course, ultimately replaced by the Churchill Theatre.
