The old Carlton Cinema
The old Carlton Cinema
This view was taken in 1979, a couple of years after this old cinema closed (29th October 1977). It was said that the bow window was once the cinema's cafe. In its last days, the lady in the ticket booth which was on the ground floor, would clump up the stairs to the auditorium and turn out the lights so the film could start - no dimming just on, then plunged into darkness.
