Thread: Old Cinemas

  1. #1

    Default Old Cinemas

    What we remember about going to an old cinema

    Smoking one side non smoking the opposite side

    The ice cream girls standing near the stage

    Snogging in the back row ha

    The rustling sound of bags sweets

    Those cup juices when someone gets to the bottom of the drink and makes a funny noise with their straw

    Whispering so you dont upset the row behind you

    Sitting behind someone who is tall and you say I CANT SEE

    Watching adverts before the film, they were grainy and mostly for local Indian restaurants.

    There is still an old fashioned cinema here in Christchurch the 'Regent Centre'

    Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it. We would annihilate each other

    this was the cinema i used to go to until about 1983. it closed down and got converted into a bingo hall. then after that closed down, the building got demolished to make way for some flats. however, that hasn't happened for some reason.

    The Regent Cinema in Marple is lucky to be independently owned & has hardly changed from the 1980s.

    They always used to have an interval half way through the film, stopped in the 1990s, but had brought it back the last time I was there.

    Boxes of Rowntree's sweets were common snacks I never seemed to see them elsewhere.

    It had a Balcony in the circle which someone once was kicked out for throwing their sweet wrappers off.

    Occasionally they would show an old cartoon before the main film, which looked great on the big screen.

    The Plaza in Stockport has been restored to it's original condition, after many years of being a bingo hall.
