The campaign to restore and reopen this cinema has now reached a critical stage, the building has been put back on the market as insufficient funds have been raised to facilitate an outright purchase. There is still hope! If anyone can help please do so before the cinema is lost forever.

Note that the location of the Rivoli is incorrect on the map provided. It is actually below Fitzroy Street, right next to the Baptist Church at the corner of Station Avenue and St John’s Road. You can actually see part of the church on the right of the photo.

Drat! Having spent a family holiday in Sandown during 1965, I hadn’t realized just how narrowly I missed the chance to see a film at the Rivoli. I do remember it looking very smart externally – no doubt following a spruce-up for the launch of bingo. That summer, the Queen’s, Sandown was enjoying long queues for “Mary Poppins” and the Regal, Shanklin also seemed to be pretty busy.

There is a campaign to save this fantastic old building and to turn it back into a cinema once again.
