I just got this from E-bay. It's the Seamore Cinema on Maryhill Rd at the junction with North Woodside Rd and Hopehill Rd. It was a regular venue for us in the '50s and '60s - the others being the Blythswood just up the Maryhill Rd and The Astoria on Possil Rd.
I live near here now and pass the site most days. Does anyone else remember it? No stories about jam jars please!
The last time i was in the Seamore was 1954 and the film showing was the Joe Louis Story this was April 1954 the reason I know was, buried my granny the day before, watched the Jolson story there also.
Do you remember the big organ in the Seamore, THE ONE UNDER THE STAGE. not what some will be thinking about. When I was wee they sometimes had variety acts on as well this was in the forties
