I spent many happy hours in the Apollo as a child and teenager and I remember the Apollo before and after tripling. Went to the Saturday morning kids club and remember dancing on the original stage. I was lucky enough to see behind the scenes several times and after tripling it was still possible to see the original front stalls and proscenium hidden behind the false walls. I went to watch the last film on the last Sunday night before closure for old times sake, a double bill featuring Friday 13th Pt lll with My Bloody Valentine in screen 1.
