      When I moved to Enfield last year my mum told me about the cinema but I had no idea what it looked like (she lived in Enfield in the early 80s). Thanks for putting this up! :)

      I think the last film I saw there was The Money Pit in 1986!

      I went to school not far from here & used to go past it usually twice a day (depending which bus route I took on the way home!)

      AND I bet it was still a 'going concern' before Tesco made the owners an offer they couldn't refuse!
