I worked at the Granada North Cheam as a projectionist from Jan 1964 until July 1967 when I left to join the BBC. Have many fond memories of those years but one that sticks in my mind was when we previewed Mary Poppins and our Manager at that time Bernard Worster made full use of the wurlitzer organ and gave a melody of Mary Poppins Music before the afternoon showings and occasionally on Saturday evenings.

In the mid 1960s all my mates from work and I used to go to the Court School of Dancing which was located above the Grenada cinema foyer. I think the entrance was through a separate door to the right of the main cinema entrance. One evening the manageress/chief instructor threw us out because we wouldn’t ask any of the girls to dance.

Ken,

I think it was demolished earlier than 1979. I’m sure it had gone by 1970, but maybe my memory is playing me up.
