    I see there's one for "Pleasure Palaces" in Southport.
    That'll be a letdown, because the guide will say, time after time:
    "And here is where another cinema once stood".

    Long before they were cinemas, they were places of entertainment such as theatres or the winter gardens.
    There's only 15 places on this walk and me and my mate have 2 so if anyone else wants to book, don't waste any time!

    5 cinemas on or near Lord Street have been demolished, and only one wasn't built as a cinema.
    That was the Trocadero, which was built as a dance hall.
    The other four were the Palladium/Odeon; the Palace/ABC; the Regal/ABC; and the Coliseum in Nevill Street.
    Both the Palladium and the Palace were Listed Buildings, so it's supremely ironic that Southport now has a "Pleasure Palaces" walk.
    As I said before: "Here is another site where a cinema once stood".

    I've no reason to think that the tour will be of buildings that were only ever cinemas or a let down.
    It doesn't claim to be a cinema walk:
    "As the town developed from humble Regency beginnings into a modern holiday destination it acquired many buildings catering for entertainment and leisure."
    It's a walk, offered free to anyone who wants to go on it.
    I don't understand such negativity.

    There's the Grand and the Garrick, the Little Theatre, and a building in Portland Street.
    Everything else has been demolished.
