We went on a school trip in 1953 to see the Everest film – a change from the Coronation coverage of the same year. I can’t remember the name of the cinema / theatre or whatever it was at the time. I do recall the location however. It was roughly opposite the Palais De Danse on Leeming St. It could have been called the Civic Hall even in those days but I’m not certain. Excellent film by the way!
I think this is a photo of the building, date not known. The Grand cinema is, or was, just around the corner.
