The Gaumont was across the street from La Scala.

Juging by the address and the description of the narrow auditorium, this is the one I meant. I reckon it was called "Newcine" and then "Classic" in the years I remember it ( 1958-1965), but the text here is a bit iffy, as it always had French and Italian films showing then. There was a coffee bar upstairs back in the early days of frothy coffee.

Dave, The Cosmo ( now Glasgow Film Theatre) was in Rose Street. The one I mean was between the Locarno and Charing X - could have been the Classic, perhaps the Curzon later on.


Honestly don't remember it but in those young and stupid days I probably only looked in the Army recruitment window

Thanks for that, Jagz. A more informative and accurate article.

Those places must have been fire hazards. I remember when i was homeless
in London in the 1990's a pron film thearter burnt down.
There were no fire escapes as there was only one stair case.
23 men lost their lives.
In a way i am sad to see them go, as they are just as much a part of Glasgows History
as the other cinemas were.

More detail on The Tatler here. Curzon Cinemas

Sam Fuller's Shock Corridor and Naked Kiss were refused certificates for public showing on release but a cinema club could screen them to members. Same went for Roger Corman's The Trip and Wild Angels.

I think all of them have been shown on British TV since.

It shows how much things have changed. I watched Tipping the velvet the other night
I wonder if that would have got a certificate 30 years ago?

I would not mind seeing it it 3D.

It ain`t just "Blue Movie" fleapits that are flammable deathtraps. I recall a horrible instance ma Ma would mention of a "decent" cinema in Rothsey many decades ago where a lot of kids were among the fatalities. (I think Mark Kermode references this in "The Good, The Bad And The Multiplex", when he discusses celluloid`s dangerous chemical composition).

Also, there were numerous dance hall fire deathtraps too, let`s not forget.

Glad to say we don't have pron cinemas here, the only way you can get to see one of them is to go to an 'adults only shop' and buy them. theres nowhere I know that shows them to the public.

Also what you would call Adult magazines have to be in sealed cellophane wrappers and displayed on a shelf too high for the average kid to get their hands on.

Newsagents should not be selling any books of an adult nature.
Newsagents are dens of iniquity.

I don't remember any cinema fire in Rothesay especially involving the deaths of children RR, It's possible that your Mother was talking about the Glen cinema in Paisley in Hogmanay 1929 when 69 children died in the panic and crush caused by a smoking film canister .

A bit off-topic. But... see Tesco was "in talks" with the distributors of "lads" mags (Maxim, Loaded, etc) a few weeks ago. The burning issue on the table? Trying to persuade them to deliver their "stock" to Tesco stores in plastic bags. That`s their idea of discretion!

Is this a subtle variation/homage to the good old days when The Victor or Battle or The Beano and The Dandy gave away free gifts? (Red plastic 3-fingered frisbees, etc)? Cos the people that buy these "lads" mags will probably just use them for a wee bit of erotic-asphixiation (i.e. the proverbial "Gaspers"!)
