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.
