    Not that it's ever happened to me of course!! :o
    Just like the staircase that didn't start to come away from the wall when I wasn't part way up it! :o

    I grew up in Enfield, and remember going to all 3 cinemas. There was the ABC, The Florida and the Granada.
    After the Granada cinema closed, it became a Gala Bingo hall and I believe the upstairs 'circle' was left intact. I have not found any means of entry as yet, and it is slap-bang in the middle of the town!
    Like Rikj i also grew up around Enfield, in fact within a short walk of here. unfortunately i still live there at present despite escaping for a few years. Admittedly i am only old enough to recall the Cannon cinema (originally 'The Savoy' and later the ABC) still in operation - now the site of Tesco, and by that time it was split into 4 screens. The Florida, which had become the town house club, was still standing till a couple of years ago when they put the new road through.

    My parents recall going to all three cinemas, but 'The Rialto' (as the granada was previously known) was the earliest to close, in the early 1970's and was a bingo hall from that point until the new one opened on the A10. Personally ive not ever been inside, open or closed but do have a couple of old photos of it somewhere which i can add to the thread.
