After the recent posts about the "Futurist" I thought I'd start a thread on cinema's,though these day's,they might not hold the same affection that they once did?
             Just to be awkward,I thought I'd start with this pic'which I'd never seen before,of the site on Lime st. of what became the "Forum",then the A.B.C.  Smile

Replaced by a modern version.



Then this was demolished!



Wonder what became of this "sculpture"



Before removal!

I wonder indeed! I hope it is hidden away somewhere and not been used as scrap!

I'd never heard of the place,which is odd,as there had been a theatre,or cinema on that site,since the 1880's! We seem to have done a good job of obliterationg some of our history,at least!

Another pic' of the A.B.C. site,before it was built.

That's a pretty awesome building, I love the style. It's a great shape, lovely design. Look at teh balcony in front of the windows.
And it was pulled down.  Rolling Eyes
Says on the advertising board building coming down before Christmas.

Suits 35 shillings, over coats 30s, never see prices like that again!
