The cinema auditorium used in the film “Brief Encounter” was the Metropole Cinema, Victoria, London.

Irene Handl ‘played’ ‘March Militaire’ on its 3 Manual Wurlitzer organ, the hands shown playing the organ were owned by the then (1945) resident organist of the Metropole Cinema, James Whitebread.

I never tire of watching David Lean’s famous classic love story “Brief Encounter”. I wonder what cinema was used in the scene where the two lovers went to see a movie? I know the pipe organ intermission music was not played by actress Irene Handl.
