As somewhere I spent a lot of time as a child this was a sad loss. My Grandfather, through his time with MGM, was a close friend of the manager (known as Uncle Phil) who always took us up into the projection booth to see how the place worked. Saw lots of Disney films and always got free tickets to premiers. I remember the opening to one of the “Herbie” movies (sadly forget which one) and all the kids received a bag full of sweets, stickers and other Disney promo stuff. I think the last movie I saw there was “The Rescuers” in the late 70’s. Lots of great childhood memories in this cinema, even standing for the Queen either before or after the movie was shown!

Why is this in the “Closed” and not “Demolished” category??

Photo is from 1959. The marquee sign reads “First release simultaneous with City”
The film shown is “Too Many Crooks” with Terry-Thomas and Sid James.
