My mother worked in this cinema when it opened in the 1960's.
Visiting it as child filled me with wonder. Just experiencing the size of such a vast interior space with it's textured walls and intriguing lighting was often as much as an experience as watching the film.
To me this was the future set in concrete.
As no one on the council estate where we lived had much money my mother would let all the local kids in for nothing.
I think it is a tragedy that this amazing piece of architecture was destroyed by philistines but then again maybe that is better fate than being bastardised into a multi screen complex.
