Seaside Postcard 12 - The Silver Screen

Lovely Pictures Continuing the current movie theme, here's one that reminds us of Ramsgate's lost cinemas - well it reminds me, and I wasn't even here...

This card dates from the 20s, judging by the old strip of photos that pulls out from beneath the screen.

Sadly, there are very few lovely pictures here now - the Granville offers the only local opportunity to enjoy the movies in town, although we are lucky to have some quirky and interesting cinema buildings in nearby areas - Broadstairs, Westgate, Margate and Sandwich all have cinemas whose architecture is a little treat. I doubt the same can be said for the forthcoming Westwood Cross multiplex.
