Lovely. Immense changes.  One of Jim's – shame it's now demolished.

That brings back memories, samsc.  There was a real art to kindling and tending a coal fire.  Many ingredients required, not just the coal but dross, briquettes, old newspaper and the kindling sticks.  I had no respect for those who used firelighters. ha ha.

The 'posh' Grosvenor cinema. My mate's uncle was the manager in the late 70s/early 80s and we would get the very occasional discount - very occasional I hasten to add.

I remember when it was the bar Bonham's but was never in the old cinema.

The cinema was the red velour seat variety.

 

Last time i was in there they were showing a series of Hitchcock films, went to see VERTIGO on the big screen.

Don't think I could have coped with Rear Window on the big screen, I would have swooned at the first sight of Grace Kelly sweeping across the screen
