    Newer Older

    Camelot Cinema Newquay approx 1977. The film showing is "Muhammed Ali, The Greatest" which was released late in 1969. It closed as a cinema in 1995, and has now been converted to the Walkabout bar. It originally opened in 1912 as the Pavilion but was largely rebuilt in 1969 after a major fire. The Camelot seated 812, and was equipped for 70mm screenings.

      Seeing this photo brought back some very nice memories. Saw the Bond film 'For Your Eyes Only' here summer 1981 with my folks. I remember it being a very nice cinema.
