Demolished now.


I've got these. Scanned from the silver screens of Wirral book. It was absolutely stunning. All photos where taken in 1933.

Want to see something extremely creepy? Look at Ste's first picture of the Wallasey Gaumont and keep an eye on the street corner...

Looks like there is a man on the second picture in that set too. Tall, with his hands behind his back, wearing a black peaked hat. think

These apparent ghosts are often seen on old photographs and are a result of the very long exposures needed in those days. The girl in the Gaumont picture will have been standing on the corner for part of the exposure, she will either have walked into the picture during the exposure, or was there at the start and walked out before the end of the exposure. There are also ghosts in front of the doors in bri445s picture of the Ritz at night.

I remember my dad would take us here,and he would make us stand at the end of the film while they played God save the Queen,he took us there to see Lawrence of Arabia, i was bored stiff!!the only good thing about was the ice cream in the interval!!well.....i wanted to see Cliff Richard in The Young Ones but my brother wanted to see Lawrence of Arabia,so that's what we saw!!!!

It used to be called the flea pit! i never got any fleas from there!!!
