Great pictures Kev. It's easy to seewhy they called them palaces. When you think what the average home looked like during the same period. It musta been like living like Royalty for a couple of hours.

It WAS a palace to me Pablo, in about 1942 when I was 11 yrs old & my annual treat at Xmas I was given the choice , the Panto at the Empire or the Paramount to see Robin Hood with Errol Flynn ! I chose Robin Hood , sheer luxury ,carpets & velvet seats ! On another occasion it was 'South With Scott' , such unforgettable memories . Ron

Ha, Errol Flynn in Robin Hood. I loved that film, it was magical. How naive we were then, I always thought Errol was a hard nosed hero, he was just like me...

Interesting that a palace of light, a cinema, should be built on a site associated with the dark, and of not seeing.
The site the Odeon Cinema now stands on used to be occupied by the 'Schools for the Indigent Blind'.
