ST0743 : The old Ritz Cinema

taken 9 years ago, near to Watchet, Somerset, Great Britain

The old Ritz Cinema
The old Ritz Cinema
Now a chandlery shop for the marina trade. I saw quite a few Norman Wisdom movies and Saturday matinees in here during the early 1960s. Some train sequences of the Beatles movie 'Hard Days Night' were shot on the nearby railway, and the cinema owner managed to get the movie fairly soon after its release. The icecream booth, on the left, used to be the ticket office.
