regarding the Cabbage Hall
Cinema, you may appreciate this story I posted to another forum last year....
This story is strange but true.
had to do a bit of business in Old Swan on Tuesday and parked up in one of the side streets. As I was going back to my car, I noticed a building that looked
like an old cinema on Prescot Rd. Decided to take a pic. Just before I took one, I asked the first person I saw if they could confirm whether it was a cinema
[This is when it gets weird! ]
The gentleman confirmed that it was. It used to be the Curzon Cinema, Old Swan. It turned out that this
chap was the manager of the Abbey Cinerama for 30 years before it closed down in 1979! Previous to that, he was also the manager of the Cabbage Hall Cinema
which is now the LFC Supporters Club. Previous to that, he was the manager of the Stella cinema in Seaforth!
The gentlemen's name is Ambler Ramsden.
The "Ambler" was his mother's maiden name. He's 85 years old and appears as fit as a fiddle. However, he told me I caught him on one of his good days,
healthwise. He'd just returned from the Royal after having a fitting for a hearing aid and had recently recovered from a mild stroke. He informed me that on
his "bad" days, he can barely string a couple of words together.
The new Amsterdam at Liverpool?

Deprived of its unique dockland waters Liverpool
becomes a Venice without canals, just another city, no
longer of special interest to anyone, least of all the
tourist. Would we visit a modernised Venice of filled in
canals to view its modern museum describing
how it once was?
