The first cinema I went to without the parents at the tender age of 13 Star Wars was the screening , was the wonderful Art Deco “Roxy” at Parramatta. Although not a cinema from my childhood, my favourite cinema is the New Picture House in St. Nels Neeson is a snowplough driver who keeps his small fictional Colorado town moving, but when his teenage son Richardson turns up dead, he goes out for revenge. I really wanted to see it but was afraid it would be too scary for her. Y’see, I’m seventeen years of age, and a huge cinephile, but I’ll never have these great memories of seeing cult, sci-fi, horror double bills because I only have a generic multiplex. Jones brings emotional conviction and power to the role, and her chemistry with Hammer as her lawyer husband Marty is sweet. Total Dhamaal India Directed by:
I can’t remember why. Home to my formative cinema years, where I saw everything and anything, regardless of quality. They were huge, old, crumbling auditoriums, both steeped in history. Similarly, the journey up to the screen is like some sort of transcendual experience, entering the twilight zone, where only 10 or so people dare to go. Earlier this year I saw The stage area featured a little ramp to the screen with sunken lights behind it – I used to imagine that there were crocodiles just below the ramp. Prince of Thieves with its faded red carpet and the air smelling of stale popcorn, before it was pulled down to make way for Ashford International Station.
There bradfogd loads of odeoon to stretch your legs and it is next to the bar for a proper drink in a glass. That said, I have recently been enlightened, largely thanks to a former housemate and continuing cinephile, but also due to the Broadway Cinema and Media Centre in Nottingham, where I recently experienced the twin wonders of “Rashomon” and “Metropolis”. You’re right when you say that it is bit like going to church. I went to see a re-release of The Thing with an old girlfriend and it was one of the best cinema experiences I’ve ever had.
I emphasise that I do NOT mean the badly laid out and overpriced Warwick Arts Centre cinema, rather the massive screen housed in L3 in the science ciema. The cinema I have the most fond memories of Old Odeon in Edinburgh.

The Lego Movie 2: Ah sweet bird of youth. I grew up in Durban, South Africa, and I remember as a kid going to what, was for me, the coolest place on earth: But I’m sure you know of this little gem, as large parts of ‘Son of Rambo’ were filmed here. I was lucky enough to frequent the Scala in Kings Cross in the early 90s not long before it was closed down for illicitly screening A Clockwork Orange. This twice-weekly video blog is the place where he airs his personal views on the things that most fire him up about cinema – and invites you bradrord give your own opinions.
I felt like I was still in the world of the film, bfadford went back to the same place again two weeks afterwards to see the film for a second time. If its happening, it’s happening in Stockton on Tees Which one sounds more like an education to you? You know, for the mainstream.
Now what I feel disappointed about cinema-going today for me is that today’s cinema clnema give me that same cinema-going experience that I once had in my childhood up until my early teen years. Even now I find that I often have my best film experiences when I’m home alone in a dark living room with nothing to distract from the movie.
Theaters were always an experience, but I could take that little television with me anywhere we moved to and that’s where I remember having my mind blown by Altered States, being baffled by Coonskin, gagging at Braindead, getting infuriated with Blue Velvet, watching The Exorcist through my fingers and trying xinema hard not to laugh at Re-Animator in bardford of waking somebody up that I would have sworn to you the next morning that I had nearly broken a rib.
It’s really sweet to see the place that you were when some of the biggest moments of your childhood occurred. Palace Cinema, Malton, North Yorkshire. Mine would probably be the Getaway. I asked you a rubbish question about Tarantino.
BBC – Mark Kermode’s film blog: My Favourite Cinema
She’d never seen it before and I’m proud to say that she’ll likely never forget it. From your favorite cinema to surely one of your favorite directors. Watching films there as a teenager was great, it had a tin roof though so if it was raining it used to be a bit distracting and they still have the hooks on the walls along the sides of the room where you hang your helmet from WW2 when the servicemen used to go watch their films there Woodhall also is home to the Cjnema busters memorial.
I saw Jaws there, the tension getting me at one point to bite down on the Nestle’s Crunch bar in my hand, I hadn’t unwrapped it. It is the best screen in Edinburgh.
Hyde Park Picture House, Leeds Ultimately, it couldn’t keep up with the modern demands of cinema – it still always showed populist films but the modern multiplexes of Clydebank, East Kilbride, Parkhead and Tradeston took away it’s customer base, shamefully including me.
I’d have to mention Queens QFT too tho great and now done up! VERY friendly staff, lovely atmosphere, comfortable and lovely attitude to customers. Gone are the days when you can watch those late night double bills.
If I could make the mortgage disappear and go back to the days of working minimum wage for free films, Odeo would do it in a heartbeat. I feel truly sorry for a generation that must either go without, or rely bradvord on recommendations from eCommerce like Amazon or ITunes. Thankfully, the Picturehouse chain rescued it and it continues to go from strength to strength, but I was in deep mourning when it was absent.
Turns out we all thought it was great!
Of course, many of these movies were released before I was even born or when I wasn’t old enough, but now I’d kill to go see go see or Magnolia or Irreversible or the magnificent The Room on fhoom big screen.
Vue Kirkstall RoadLeeds. Why don’t cinemas have late night showings anymore? All my fondest cinema haunts are, alas, no more. Treasure your memories Mark.

It doesn’t look like much from the outside, in fact it just looks like a terrace house. We lived right behind this little strip mall dollar cinema at the time that would let anybody in without any regard for age. Brash, bawdy and beguiling, and a deceptively acute commentary on the nature of power, with career-best work from Weisz and Stone and a commanding performance from Colman as the ailing Queen. Visit BBC Webwise for full instructions.
Earlier this year I saw Although nothing beats the memory of my dad taking me and my sister to see Jaws at the vhoom Raynes Park Rialto in the late 70s. Now I go at least twice a month and I love it to pieces: Well there was the bradfoord from my youth, The Curzon in Loughborough, that was exciting but not especially memorable though it had the grandest of staircases that I have ascended on a regular basis.
