The Premier in Shettleston Road. Later converted( haha) into a catholic church- St Barnabas if I recall correctly. Even later became a bingo hall or social club.

The Geggie was in Kirkpatrick Street, off the London Road. I lived in Bernard Street between 1947 and 1954 and it was my 'local' cinema. My favourite Saturday matinee was Flash Gordon, which was recently shown on T.V. Brought back a few memories, I can tell you!

has many a great day or night in the Geggiel they let weans in tae see Xs so that wiz me made up. ah mind getting thrown out for gigglin so much at Geordie. we hid sat through it twice and were having a laugh when Jean shouts.. Come oan come away ma wee Geordie.. next think ma cousin and maself wheeched oot by the coats and papped outside on the street.. aye those were the days eh...

Ah wis in The Scotia a few times - ah think ah saw "Psycho" in there fur the first time - but ah always knew it as The Wee Scotia, same as The Wee Royal in Brigton. Ah wis only in the Wee Royal wance, when "Superman And The Mole Men" wis showin. smile.gif Livin in Cranhill at the time, ma usual haunts were The Carlton and The Casino in Toonheid, The Rex and The Vogue in Riddrie, The State and The Odeon in Shettleston, The Parade in Alexandra Parade, and The Olympia in Brigton.

The State in Shettleston was my "local" - great cinema. Odeon was a dump by comparison - typical Rank Organisation - when Cinemascope came in and most cinemas knocked down walls and put in huge screens to accommodate it. Rank cinemas made their screen " wide" by reducing the height of the frame. Thus you saw a smaller image instead of bigger. Scunner.

The Scotia was in Millerston Street which ran between Duke Street and Gallowgate. I was only there once as a kid and I remember thinking that the seats were lumpy.

I am afraid the others are not cinemas with which I am familiar and they are so unusually named that I am sure I would have remembered them.

Regards,

Luceo

I went to see Dr No at the Scotia in the early '60s. It was a bit more adult than the other cinemas in the Dennistoun, Calton, Bridgeton area.

The Scotia advertised its " Magic Mirror" screen, which seemed to consist of illuminated panels around the screen. What this did to enhance one's viewing experience was beyond me.

The Kings Picture House James Street Brigton this picture hall was pitch black the whole interior was painted black no lights. If you wanted to hear you had to sit at the front any further back all you could hear was moans and groans, it was a haunt for snowdroppers. unsure.gif

The building still stands plans have been submitted to convert it to a Mosque. sad.gif
