Hi Maryhillgal, yes I remember Roy Rogers & Trigger visiting Eastpark Home I went to see him I've been in every Picture hall on the Maryhill Rd. except the Rio and the wee Electric at Georges Cross, My Wife was born on Fernie St. when we got married on 1952 we managed to get a single-end on Fernie Street the Star Pictures was very handy, if you haven't seen Maryhill of late you wouldn't recognise it Fernie St,Rolland St.all gone it's nice, but not the same

hi mags,I used to go to the same pictures.The ROXY,I remember if some one had enough money to get in,they would open the doors and we would all pile in,crawling along the floor picking up tickets along the way,and if the "TORCHIE"asked for your ticket you had one to show him.we could ony skip in thru the womans toilet as if you opened the back door of the boys-a red light plus a buzzer used to go mental,and all the torchies would scamper trying to catch us kids,10 might get in,8 caught,that would mean the 2 left could open the doors again,tell you-"we drove them mad back then"

arrabest,

The very fisrt 'pickture' I ever saw was at the Roxie, I lived on Wilton Drive and the 'big girls' on the street asked my Mum to take me to see the wizard of oz. They sat me on the 3rd row from the front and I was terrified!
Does anyone remember the name of the Dept. Store that was on Maryhill Rd.? It had the things that flew overhead to the main office and then back again with your change and receipt.
I have lived in USA For over 30 years and still miss Maryhill Rd. and all that went on there.

I remember the Roxy in maryhill, i went to see Dr. who and the daleks invasion of Earth in there, and my mother said i was so enthralled that i let my ice cream melt down my new trousers.
Those old cinema were great, and Going to see Flash gordon in the saturday morning matinee.
The soup in that cafe next door was great. So thick you could stand your spoon up in it.

I remember all these picture halls on Maryhill road, and the Rio at Canniesburn. One of the picture halls, I think it was The Star was also known as the local Flea pit. Does anyone else remember that.
Yes indeed, Roy Rogers and Trigger did visit the Eastpark home. My older brother had the pictures to prove it.
