Going To The Pictures

Advertising of cinemas in the Liverpool Echo

“The Liverpool Echo would list over a 100 cinemas each night. I would travel all over Merseyside to watch certain films.

I lived in the Anfield area of Liverpool and would go to places such as Huyton to see ‘Top Hat’. Once I travelled to the Winter Gardens, Waterloo to see ‘Blue Skies’. One day I would be in a ‘flea pit’ like the Cabbage Hall, or the Everton Palace. The next day I would be in the Forum or the Odeon in London Road.”
