      seems organised religion is saving a few interesting buildings around the capital. Thanks for filling in more north London gaps for us.

      Circuit Managements Association never owned a Cinema. It was set up by "The Rank Org" to standardise the running of there various Cinema companies EG Odeon. Gaumont PCT etc etc This made it easier to move Manager betweeen Gaumonts Odeon ETC.
