Before it was the ABC it was the Savoy and I think it was built on the site of the New Theatre Royal. Isn't it a snooker hall now?

"

We are the boys and girls all known as..
Minors of the ABC...
And every Saturday all line up...
To see the films we like and shout aloud with glee..
We like to laugh and have our sing-song...
Such a happy crowd are wee..eeeee
We're all pals together...
We're Minors of the ABC.


Aaawwhhh ..... Memories smile

If my memory serves me right - if they knew your birthday they would send you a birthday card from from Mickey Mouse. I can remember singing that song that Sneezy is talking about.

If it was bombed during the war it must have been repaired quick because I was taken there in 1944 to see the Wizard of Oze. First time taken to the pictures and sat on my dads knee. How's that for the memory of a 70 odd year old { the tin man scared the shit out of me} had night mares for ages after seeing the film

Not very often when I wanted a pint when playing snooker.

Here is some useless information, the lad that bought it and turned it in to a snooker hall told me when I was having a drink with him. To level off the floor it took 14 feet of concrete at the screen end and leveling back to the entrance.
