    Its sad that so many old cinemas are now gone. Nice to hear there are a few survivors though. A lot were built in the 30's and 40's, the golden age of cinema and are decorated in Hollywood art deco style. If only for that reason they should be kept. It would be lovely to turn a few back into cinemas, showing older films on the big screen once more. I don't care how big the TV is and how impressive the sound you can't really replicate the atmosphere of the big screen. Even the fleapits had an attraction of their own. There used to be one in Coventry called Theatre One. It was going into the 90's. The place was a real mess in the end though and wasn't cleaned much. I remember going there about 1995 just before it closed as a cinema. I don't remember the film but I do remember my shoes sticking every time I put them down. No doubt a semi toxic combination of spilled Coke, hot dog fat and Popcorn. At least I hope that's all it was! They used to screen soft porn flics one afternoon a week! errrggh.

    if its at the cinema we're talking about, the earliest i can remember is just little snippets of Disney's Sword In The Stone, when i was about 3 or 4 (around 1984), the first films i fully remember seeing were Return to Oz and The Black Cauldron, both in 1985.

    my mum and dad used to take me and my sister to loads of films, when our small town still had the 'Palace Cinema' up until 1990, when it closed down and got demolished

    I love that film. I even had the dinky toy version of Chitty with folding wings. My mum gave it to a Jumble sale a few years later along with loads of other vintage toys that are now probably worth a small fortune. Oh well.

    At Houghton (le-Spring) we had quite a modern 1 screen cinema in a THEN new building where I saw 101 Dalmations (original) with my mam and little sister. It had a pre-film about a boy and a pigeon. At the interval my mam went for a coffee, the lady asked where she was sitting and then brought her coffee in a china cup and saucer! Its now a snooker hall (and has been for alongtime now).

    i was seven and my stepdads son took me to see Star Wars when it was rereleased in Britain for the summer of '78, it cost 50p.

    it was a double feature with an italian made sci fi film called 'Humanoid' which starred richard keil who played jaws in the bond films.
