OK, you've left the date on the photo so we don't have to geek out over the cars and I suspect that's Duckett's common in the foreground but... there was a cinema there?

Thanks for adding the Photo Hob.

John, for more on the Cinema, see this part of my Wikipedia article on Harringay cinemas.

There certainly was John. Family-run business. had a reputation as a fleapit But I went a couple of times and emerged unscathed. Perfectly acceptable cinema and MUCH cheaper than the West End.
I would guess it closed about 7 years ago ?

Yes, that's Ducketts Common aka Dirty Park.
You say, "there was a cinema there?" There isn't now!?! I've been away too long. What's there instead?
I guess the multiplex in the shopping centre up the road finally did for it.
I shall have a look on Street Level maps when I've a free moment and see what's there now.

I used to go to this cinema it was the ABC Turnpike Lane. Tanner rush on Saturday morning. They had a sing song as well which was a bit naff but everyone joined in. Monitors sat on the ends of the rows of seats and when you left you had to wait for the monitor to raise their paddle with the row number on it. Can't imagine anything like that now. It was brilliant then though.
